Opening statements begin in trial of accused cop killer HulseyPosted: Updated:
A prosecutor says an Arizona man on trial on charges he fatally shot a police officer during a routine 2007 traffic stop told the officer, "I've got something for you," before he fired the fatal shot.
Bryan Wayne Hulsey is accused of killing Glendale Officer Anthony Holly after Hulsey exited a vehicle that had been pulled over for speeding.
Prosecutor Juan Martinez made opening arguments at midday Monday.
Defense attorneys are making opening arguments Monday afternoon.
Hulsey has pleaded guilty to the charges against him.
His attorneys have questioned whether Holly was unintentionally shot by the officer who pulled over the vehicle.
Prosecutors said they will seek the death penalty against Hulsey.
The trial for Holly's alleged killer has been postponed several times, making it the oldest capital murder case in the county.
The other officer returned fire, wounding Hulsey, who was later captured and taken into custody.
