INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – There could be movement in a high-profile murder case in Indianapolis. The man accused of shooting an Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officer to death is due in court on Friday.

A pre-trial conference for Major Davis, Junior is set for Friday morning. He is charged with murdering Officer Perry Renn – back in July 2014 at 34th Street and Forest Manor Avenue.

Davis faces the death penalty if convicted. The Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry said this case has two aggravating circumstances that support a death penalty case: that Davis killed Renn while Renn was on duty as a police officer, and that the murder was motivated by an act Renn performed while acting in the course of his duty as an officer.

In January, Davis filed a lawsuit that claimed IMPD officers used excessive force by shooting Davis in the back of the head, abdomen and back. A judge threw out the lawsuit in February.
