(FRANKLIN) The case against a former Hearne Police Officer who shot and killed an elderly woman has been delayed. 

The case against former officer Stephen Stem was supposed to be presented to the Robertson County Grand Jury this week, but had to be delayed as several jurors did not report as required. Investigators say Stem shot and killed 93-year-old Pearlie Golden in May after responding to reports Golden was waving a gun around in her yard. Stem reportedly asked the woman to put down her weapon, and when she refused, shot and killed her. He was fired within days of the shooting. The case is now expected to be presented in September.
