GOSHEN - An Orange County father accused of killing a wanted rape suspect in 2013 was in court Monday for a pretrial hearing.

David Carlson is accused of shooting and killing wanted rape suspect Norris Accosta Sanchez, who was on the run from police. The Sparrowbush father claims it was in self-defense.

A Deer Park police officer testified Monday in Orange County Court that she was off duty the day of the shooting, but showed up at the scene and spoke with Carlson in an ambulance about what happened.

The pretrial hearing will determine if the officer's statement as well as others made to police can be used during the trial.

This is the second time Carlson has been indicted. A judge threw out the case the first time because of a faulty grand jury presentation.
