CHARLESTON, W.Va. — The Berkeley County prosecuting attorney released dashcam footage Thursday of the November police beating of a 16-year-old male in Martinsburg.

The daschcam release came one day after a federal grand jury indicted former West Virginia state trooper Michael Kennedy on one charge of the deprivation of rights under color of law.

A news release announcing the indictment does not go into detail about the incident, but says it occurred Nov. 19, 2018, the same day as the beating of a 16-year-old publicized by Gov. Jim Justice.
