LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - There was a strong police presence in a downtown Louisville courtroom Tuesday.

Wathaniel Woods, the man accused of leading an LMPD officer on a high-speed chase that ultimately killed the officer, showed up for a pre-trial conference.

LMPD officers were chasing Woods through the streets of Louisville in March before the pursuit ended in a violent crash with Rodman's cruiser.

Rodman died the following day. His death triggered a citywide outpouring of support for his widow and their two young children.

Woods faces a long list of charges, including murder.
