Davon Lymon sentenced to life in prison for murdering APD officer


Daniel Webster’s family laid into Davon Lymon on Tuesday as he faced sentencing, but Lymon had a lot to say and he offered no apologies. 

The sentence was no surprise: life without the possibility of parole. Before handing it down, the judge said Lymon clearly has a callous indifference toward human life, and Tuesday, Officer Webster’s widow got to address him for the first time. 

“You are evil and incapable of feeling anything,” Michelle Webster said. 

Lymon murdered Albuquerque Police Officer Daniel Webster back in 2015 when Webster stopped him on a stolen motorcycle.

Lymon then had his chance to address the judge. There were no apologies, no remorse, but rather a claim that he, like anyone else, as the right to live and was only defending himself. He also accused prosecutors of indicting him on false claims just because of the color of his skin. 

“This case has never been about the truth, always been about a black man…locking him up for the rest of his life,” Lymon said. 

The courtroom was filled with police officers. Many of them shook their heads in disbelief when Lymon was speaking. The judge said afterward it’s clear he has no remorse. 

Lymon is already serving 38 years in federal prison for a gun charge. Once he’s finished with that, he will begin serving the sentence in this case. 

The judge also added eight and a half years onto Lymon’s sentence for the other crimes he committed the night of the murder.

With all capital murder cases, a defendant has the right to appeal. Lymon’s attorneys haven’t said if they will file one.
