CHICAGO (CBS) --One of the brothers charged in the death of Chicago police officer Ella French will appear in court on Friday.

The case was continued at a hearing Wednesday.

Eric Morgan is currently being held in the Cook County Jail without bond. Officer French was shot and killed during a traffic stop in West Englewood on August 7.

The hearing is happening just one day after what would have been officer French's 30th birthday. CPD members, including Superintendent David Brown, met with the officer's mother Elizabeth, who blew out candles on a birthday cake made for her daughter.
