Thursday, a paramedic took the stand in Davon Lymon’s murder trial, calling the accused cop killer “belligerent.”
After police had Lymon in custody the night they say he killed APD Officer Daniel Webster, paramedic Jonathan Morain was one of the first people, who wasn’t a law enforcement officer, to interact with him.
That night Lymon was Morain’s patient.
“I saw that he had an injured left hand,” Morain testified.
That’s because when police found Lymon, they sent in a K9 to get the 38-year-old to surrender. According to police, Lymon was hiding in the backyard of a home just blocks away from the scene.
“How was he behaving that night?” a prosecutor asked Morain.
“He was acting, um, I would say belligerent,” Morain said.
Morain is a firefighter and paramedic with Albuquerque Fire Rescue. He said they bandaged Lymon’s left wrist and drove him to the hospital. During the ride, Morain said Lymon kept threatening to use the restroom in the ambulance if paramedics didn’t pull over.
“He, actually, specifically said that, why are we mistreating him and being mean to him by not letting him use the restroom,” Morain said.
But his description of Lymon’s character that night came to an abrupt end when he said, “He was, uh, he had no remorse.”
Lymon’s defense quickly objected and District Court Judge Neil Candelaria agreed.
“Ladies and gentlemen, I’m going to instruct you to disregard the last answer by the witness,” he said. “You’re not to consider that in any way.”
