ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) ā€” The wife of a New Jersey detective has told a jury her husband flashed his badge at an irate driver before the two men stopped for a fatal face-off along Interstate 97.

Marie Walker testified Thursday at the Annapolis trial of Joseph Walker, an investigator for the Hudson County, New Jersey, prosecutor’s office. He’s charged with first-degree murder in the June 2013 shooting of Joseph Harvey of Landsdowne.

Walker maintains he fired in self-defense.

His wife says she wasn’t aware that her husband had cut off Harvey’s vehicle, but she noticed Harvey cursing and gesturing as his Honda swerved toward their family minivan. She says Walker yelled that he was a police officer.

Harvey’s passenger testified earlier that Walker pointed a gun at them but he never saw a badge.
