One of the Cleveland police officers involved in the 2012 deadly chase and shooting wants the judge to hear the case instead of a jury.
Monday in court, prosecutors filed a motion to stop that from happening.
Officer Michael Brelo was charged with manslaughter in the shooting deaths of Timothy Russell and Malissa Williams in November of 2012.
A total of 137 shots were fired at Russell and Williams, 49 of them by Officer Brelo.
Brelo wants to skip a trial by jury. He has pleaded not guilty in the case.
The judge is expected to make a decision by the end of the week.
