May 8 Morning Rush: Davon Lymon sentenced to life without parole for murder of APD officer


1. The appeal process will begin for Davon Lymon’s murder case. The convicted killer is now serving a 38-year-sentence plus life for two cases linked to the murder of APD Officer Daniel Webster. For the first time in court, Officer Webster’s widow addressed his killer saying she wishes horrible things for Lymon. Lymon, on the other hand, gave no apologies, showed no remorse, instead, reiterated that he shot the officer in self-defense because he’s a black man who feared for his life.
