TOWSON, Md. (AP) — A Dec. 11 trial date has been set for a Baltimore County police officer charged in the death of a teenager.

Prosecutors say Officer James Laboard chased and struggled with 17-year-old Christopher Brown after his Randallstown home was vandalized. A grand jury indicted Laboard in June on manslaughter and involuntary manslaughter charges. Both carry a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison.

Police have said Laboard was off duty and at home June 13 when he heard a loud noise, went outside and found his front door damaged. Police say he then chased a group of youths for several blocks before pulling Brown from bushes and struggling with him. Police said the officer called for help when the teen lost consciousness.

Brown's mother has said Laboard should face more-serious charges
