January 30, 2019 07:14 PM
UTICA, N.Y. - It took an Albany police officer less than two minutes to plead not guilty to patronizing a prostitute.
Christofer Kitto appeared in city court in Utica on Wednesday morning. He's due back March 29.
He was suspended earlier this month after he shot and killed Shatelle Hooks of Syracuse while in the company of the prostitute.
Kitto told Utica police that Hooks pulled a knife and tried to rob him.
So far, police say the shooting appears to be justifiable homicide.
