An American judge has awarded the family of Michael Slagers first-degree murder charges in the death of an African-American man in 2016.

The decision was announced Monday by a Marion County Circuit Court judge.

The Slager family is planning to appeal the verdict.

Michael Slags death was the most deadly shooting by a police officer in the U.S. for more than 30 years.

He died from a single gunshot wound to the head, prosecutors said.

Michael Slager, a 37-year-old father of two, was shot and killed by a deputy in his front yard on July 17, 2016.

The shooting occurred as he and his family were returning to their home after a family vacation.
