Judge sets trial date for Officer Webster’s accused killer

News

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The federal trial for the man accused of killing Albuquerque Police Officer Daniel Webster has been rescheduled.

Davon Lymon was set to go on trial on August 3rd for being a felon in possession of the firearm used to shoot Webster. However, the judge delayed the trial because of concerns about the publicity over the police shootings in Dallas and Baton Rouge.

Officer Webster was shot during a traffic stop on Eubank and Central in October. At the time, Lymon was prohibited from having a gun because he was a felon.

He hasn’t yet been charged with Webster’s death on the state level but that charge is expected to come.

The new trial date has been set for October 24th.
