PHOENIX (AP) -- A jury in Phoenix has started deliberating in the murder trial of a man charged with fatally shooting a Glendale police officer during a 2007 traffic stop.
The Maricopa County Superior Court jury began deliberations Thursday in the case of Bryan Wayne Hulsey. He is charged with murder in the killing of Glendale Officer Anthony Holly.
Hulsey was a passenger in a vehicle that had been pulled over for speeding and not having a license plate.
Holly was there to serve as backup to another officer who made the stop.
Hulsey is also charged with attempted first-degree murder.
His attorneys have denied he killed Holly and instead suggested that Holly was unintentionally shot by the officer who pulled over the vehicle.
