The Huntsville City Council is spending more money on the legal defense of a police officer charged with murder.
According to Councilman Bill Kling, the Huntsville City Council voted Thursday to spend $25,000 more on Officer William Darby's defense, for a total of $100,000.
In August, the grand jury indicted Darby for the murder of Jeffery Louis Parker. The murder charge stems from an incident that happened back in April.
