SHAWNEE, Okla. (AP) — An Oklahoma man has been formally sentenced to death for killing an Oklahoma police officer.
A Pottawatomie County judge on Friday handed down the sentence recommended by a jury in November for 38-year-old Byron James Shepard of Okemah. The jury had days earlier convicted Shepard of killing 22-year-old Tecumseh Officer Justin Terney during a traffic stop in 2017.
