Ex-Minnesota cop Kimberly Potter allegedly killed Daunte Wright after she confused her gun and Taser.
The 26-year veteran, was heard on bodycam footage saying, "Oh s*** I shot him," after opening fire on Wright, at a stoplight in Brooklyn Center, near Minneapolis.
Last week she made her first court appearance.
After a week of riots over the fatal shooting, Potter was released from Hennepin County jail on a $100,000 bail and charged with second degree manslaughter.
A second appearance date of May 17 was also scheduled.
Meanwhile, Wright's family call for life sentence.
Wright's aunt Naisha, said during a press conference before the court hearing "If we can have life, we want life. We gotta go life without him."
She also held up a printed photograph of a Taser and a gun, asking "y'all see the difference? This is a Taser, but no my nephew was killed with this -, a Glock."
Wright's mom, Katie, added: "Justice would be bringing our son home to us," she said.
"If that [justice] even happens, we're still going to bury our son, we're still never gonna be able to see our baby boy, that we're never gonna have again."
