Mohamed Noor arrives for his court hearing on Thursday.

MINNEAPOLIS - A judge is allowing prosecutors to add a second degree intentional murder charge against former Minneapolis police officer Mohamed Noor.

Prosecutors say Noor shot and killed Justine Ruszczyk Damond last year after she called police to report a possible sexual assault behind her home.

Lawyers argue Noor intended to kill Damond when he aimed and fired at her in the alley behind her south Minneapolis home.

Damond called police in July of 2017 -- and was killed when she approached the police car.

Noor is already charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter.

Noor is scheduled to face trial April 1.
