MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – A judge has ordered the mother of Philando Castile, a motorist fatally shot by a Minnesota police officer last summer, receive what remains of a $3 million settlement after attorneys are paid.
The judge decided in favor of Valerie Castile after reviewing letters from Philando Castile’s father, who wanted a portion of the settlement, and two half-brothers who did not ask for any money.
Castile was shot in July 2016 during a traffic stop by St. Anthony police Officer Jeronimo Yanez.
