PHOENIX (AP) -- Testimony is scheduled to resume on July 14 at the trial of an Arizona man charged with fatally shooting a police officer during a 2007 traffic stop.

Jurors at Bryan Wayne Hulsey's trial last heard testimony on Monday and are taking a three-week break before hearing again from witnesses.

Hulsey is charged with killing Glendale Officer Anthony Holly after Hulsey exited a vehicle that had been pulled over for speeding and not having a license plate.

He was a passenger in the vehicle.

Holly was there to serve as backup to another officer who made the stop.

Hulsey has pleaded not guilty to the charges against him.

His attorneys have denied he killed Holly and instead alleged that he was unintentionally shot by the officer who pulled over the vehicle.
