ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Officials say the state attorney general’s office will prosecute the man suspected of shooting and killing an Albuquerque police officer last year.

Michael Lewis, a deputy district attorney in Bernalillo County, says the state case stemming from the 2015 shooting death of Officer Daniel Webster will be transferred to the attorney general’s office for prosecution.

Authorities say ex-convict Davon Lymon fatally shot Webster a year ago during a traffic stop. State charges in the case have yet to be filed against Lymon, who has remained in custody on federal charges since his arrest in the Oct. 21, 2015, shooting.

Lymon is scheduled to appear before a federal judge Monday for a five-day bench trial on charges of being a felon in possession of the firearm that authorities say was used to shoot Webster.
