An Alabama man was found guilty of capital murder in the 2019 killing of a police officer.

A Madison County jury convicted LaJeromeny Brown in the killing of Huntsville police officer Billy Clardy III during an undercover drug sting.

The verdict came after three days of deliberations.

The jury will now weight whether Brown should receive the death penalty or life in prison.

During the trial Brown admitted to going to a home to sell marijuana, but testified he felt he was being robbed and shot the undercover police officer in self-defense. The jury didn’t buy it.
