Death sentence upheld for convicted cop killer

5 years ago October 20, 2009 Oct 20, 2009 Tuesday, October 20 2009 Tuesday, October 20, 2009 1:26:36 PM CDT in News

Louisiana's Supreme Court has upheld the conviction and death sentence of Shedran Williams for the May 2004 murder of a Baton Rouge police officer.

Williams was convicted of shooting Lt. Vickie Wax while she was working a security detail at a now-closed Wal-Mart in Baton Rouge.

Williams, then 33, shot Wax during a struggle with her, a Wal-Mart customer and a store guard who had tried to detain him for shoplifting disposable cameras.

Tuesday's decision by the Supreme Court notes that Williams still can go to the U.S. Supreme Court.
