Thomas Porter, 31, was convicted of capital murder in March after he admitted shooting Officer Stanley Reaves three times in the head.
"I have never stated that I don't deserve to be in prison. I took a life, so I deserve to be in prison," said Porter, who was sentenced to death for killing Norfolk Police Officer Stanley Reaves in 2005. "But it's making my family a victim."
