MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - A legal representative for Tadarrius Bean informed the Action News 5 team that Tedarrius Bean will be moving forward with his motion for a separate trial, contrary to our previous belief that he would be reversing his motion.

On June 21, Tadarrius Bean filed a motion requesting a separate trial.

A legal representative for Bean assures us that he will be moving forward with his motion for a separate trial.

Bean and former officers Emmitt Martin III, Desmond Mills, Justin Smith, and Demetrius Haley are charged with second-degree murder along with several other charges for the alleged Jan. 7 beating that led to Nichols’ passing three days later.

All five of the former officers are due back in court on Aug. 18.
