ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The man accused of gunning down Albuquerque Police officer Daniel Webster could go on trial as early as March 2018.

Davon Lymon was not transported to court Monday for his status hearing, but instead listened in from the Metropolitan Detention Center. During the hearing, attorneys revealed they may have as many as 264 witnesses. The judge also set a tentative trial date.

Lymon has already been convicted of federal charges for having the gun used to kill Officer Webster during a traffic stop in 2015, but another trial will be held in state District Court for the actual murder.
