SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - A hearing will determine whether there is enough evidence for a trial against a felon suspected of fatally shooting an officer.

The Spokesman Review reports (http://bit.ly/1PVXlzY) footage from the body camera of fallen Coeur d’Alene police Sgt. Greg Moore was presented during the first day of a hearing that will determine whether Jonathan Daniel Renfro goes to trial.

Court-appointed public defenders argued against the video’s introduction, which is sealed from public view along with all other evidence in the case.

The video reportedly shows the shooting and the first officers who arrived on scene after the suspect fled.

Renfro was a paroled felon when the shooting occurred. He has not entered a plea but is facing several charges, including first-degree murder.

He is being held on a $2 million bond.
