INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — A man accused of killed an IMPD officer in 2014 told a judge he wants to represent himself.
Major Davis Jr. is accused of killing an IMPD officer in 2014.
According to court documents, a judge threw out his request to have his attorneys withdrawn until a motion was properly filed.
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.
His next court date is scheduled for May 20.
