A white Chicago police officer charged with murder in the 2014 fatal shooting of black teenager Laquan McDonald pleaded not guilty Tuesday. Jason Van Dyke is “hanging in there” and wants to tell his side of what happened so he’s not seen “as this cold-blooded killer,” defense attorney Dan Herbert said after the court hearing. Herbert added that they haven’t ruled out asking for a change of venue. The case is in Cook County Criminal Court in Chicago where demonstrators have staged marches protesting the shooting and how it’s been handled. Late Tuesday, a small group of demonstrators marched to the private home of Mayor Rahm Emanual, who returned home from vacation.

Ethan Couch, the Texas teenager given probation for four intoxication-manslaughter convictions, is to return to the United States from Mexico on Wednesday. Couch, 18, was taken into custody in Puerto Vallarta Monday evening after spending eleven days on the run from local, state and federal law enforcers. Couch’s mother, Tanya, was also arrested and could face criminal charges of helping her son to avoid apprehension. Couch had a blood/alcohol level three times the legal limit when he killed four pedestrians with his pickup truck in 2013. His lawyer argued that Couch’s privileged upbringing left him unable to tell right from wrong before the crash. ABC’s Jim Ryan will have the latest.
