Death sentence upheld for convicted cop killer

5 years ago Tuesday, October 20, 2009 12:26:36 PM CDT October 20, 2009 Tuesday, October 20 2009 Oct 20, 2009 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.
