ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A man suspected of fatally shooting an Albuquerque police officer in 2015 is scheduled to go to trial next year.

The Albuquerque Journal reported Tuesday (http://bit.ly/2jyRWUM ) that Davon Lymon is set to go to trial in 2018 on charges that he fatally shot Officer Daniel Webster during a traffic stop in October 2015.

Lymon, who has a lengthy criminal history, was convicted last year in federal court of being a felon in possession of a firearm. Federal prosecutors called more than a dozen witnesses and presented the fallen officer’s lapel video as evidence as they sought to prove Lymon possessed the pistol used in Webster’s death.

Webster was a highly decorated officer and former Army Ranger. He died from his injuries eight days after the shooting.
