FILE - In this Nov. 24, 1992 file photo, Soon Ja Du, 51, left, leaves court with her husband, Billy Hong Ki Du, in Los Angeles. The Korean grocer's killing of a 15-year-old black girl, Latasha Harlins, in a dispute over a bottle of orange juice, raised tensions in the black community just two weeks after King's beating. Those tensions escalated further when she was convicted of manslaughter but sentenced only to probation and community service. Many in Los Angeles' black community still say Du's sentencing played almost as big a role in triggering the riot as King's beating. (AP Photo/Chris Martinez)
