ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A man awaiting trial in state court in the 2015 fatal shooting of an Albuquerque police officer has been sentenced to 20 years in prison on federal convictions for weapons crimes.

U.S. District Court Judge M. Christina Armijo on Wednesday sentenced Davon Lymon to two consecutive 10-year sentences for convictions of being a felon in possession of a firearm.

A Bernalillo County grand jury in December indicted Lymon on murder and other charges in the fatal shooting of Officer Daniel Webster during a traffic stop in Oct. 21, 2015.

Lymon was convicted of the federal weapons charges in 2016.

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.
