ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - The civil suit trial against Levi Chavez, the fired Albuquerque cop acquitted of murdering his wife , is set for January 13th.
Chavez was found not guilty last month of shooting his wife Tera with his APD issued gun as she slept in their Los Lunas home.
He claims she committed suicide – but Tera's family believed Chavez killed her and staged the scene to look like a suicide.
The family filed a wrongful death suit against Chavez and the Albuquerque Police Department in 2008.
The city settled for nearly a quarter million dollars but Chavez's portion is still unsettled.
On Thursday Chavez told the judge presiding over the case he could not find a lawyer to represent him – and will likely do it himself.
As the first week of December arrived, so did a storm bringing snow, ice and freezing temperatures.
