A pulmonary and critical care physician named David Beuther recognized the paramedics' efforts.

But when prodded, he claimed that it was not his place to assign blame for McClain's passing.

On allegations of manslaughter, Roedema and former officer Jason Rosenblatt will go on trial in Adams County.

An on-call paramedic gave him a ketamine injection.

 A few days later, McClain passed away in the hospital after losing his breath and experiencing cardiac arrest.

Black male McClain was 23 years old at the time.

After purchasing iced tea from a convenience store, he was walking home.

A trial for Woodyard, the third policeman, is scheduled to begin in October.

 In November, Jeremy Cooper and Peter Cichuniec, two paramedics from Aurora Fire Rescue, will go on trial.
