ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A federal judge is weighing a decision in a federal firearms case that involves the ex-convict suspected of shooting and killing an Albuquerque police officer.

Defense and prosecuting attorneys made closing arguments Tuesday in the bench trial of Davon Lyman, who is accused of being a felon in possession of the firearm that authorities say was used to shoot Officer Daniel Webster last year. Since it is a bench trial, Chief Judge M. Christina Armijo will decide the verdict.

Lymon has not been charged in Webster’s death.

State prosecutors say they plan to file charges in the shooting soon.

Police say Webster was shot by Lymon on Oct. 21, 2015, during a nighttime traffic stop. Webster died eight days later from his injuries at University of New Mexico Hospital.
