A former police officer who's accused of killing Mannford Police Chief Lucky Miller is scheduled to appear in a Florida court.

Former Mannford Police officer, Mike Nealey, is charged with murder.

Now, his attorney is asking for a meeting with a Florida judge to reconsider the issue of Nealey getting bond.

Court documents also say Nealey's attorney is asking for cell phone video he believes could help prove Nealey's innocence.

Nealey is charged in the death of his boss, Mannford Chief Lucky Miller, last November in a Florida hotel where the men were staying for a training conference.

In the request to re-consider bond Nealey's attorney says Nealey has COVID-19 and a kidney infection, which puts his health at risk in custody.

As for the request for cell phone video, Nealey's attorney says two people have said they've seen at least one video that Lucky Miller sent to his wife the night he died.

Documents say the video showed Nealey asleep in the hotel room.

That could be important because if Nealey was sleeping, it shows no criminal intent on his part .

Court documents says both men were drunk at the time.

It also says there are three cell phones in evidence.

The defense attorney is requesting access to all three of them to see if there are calls, pictures, texts, and videos taken by both men in the hours leading up to Miller's death.
