PASCO, Wash. -

The attorney for the widow of a Mexican man shot to death by Pasco police wants the three officers to be charged immediately with murder.

Attorney George Trejo of Yakima has sent a letter to Franklin County prosecutors calling for the murder charges in the Feb. 10 shooting in Pasco that was captured on video.

Trejo contends the officers executed 35-year-old Antonio Zambrano-Montes and should at minimum be charged with second degree murder.

The Tri-City Herald reports that Franklin County Prosecutor Shawn Sant is awaiting a report from investigators and then will decide if any charges are filed against the officers.

Zambrano-Montes was shot after he reportedly threw at least one rock at officers. The orchard worker was not carrying a gun or knife.
