MESA, AZ (AP) -

The wife of the unarmed man killed by a Mesa police officer wants the body camera video of the shooting released so that the public can see it.

On Tuesday, Laney Sweet posted a video on YouTube saying the Maricopa County Attorney is trying to silence her.

Mark Geragos, an attorney representing Shaver's wife, disputes that his client's husband wasn't following police orders.

"She wants the body cam (footage) released just so everyone can see how ridiculous and outrageous this is," Geragos said.
