INDIANAPOLIS - The man accused of killing an Indianapolis police officer in an alley shootout appeared in court for the first time Tuesday, where a not guilty plea was entered on his behalf.
Major Davis II, 25, faces one count of murder in the shooting death of IMPD Officer Perry Renn on July 5 .
The Marion County prosecutor is also seeking a sentence enhancement for use of a gun that resulted in death.
In 2011, prosecutors sought the death penalty against Thomas Hardy in the killing of Indianapolis police Officer David Moore, but Hardy later pleaded guilty in return to a sentence of life without parole. In 2002, Benjamin Donnie Ritchie was sentenced to death in the slaying of Beech Grove Police Officer William Toney; Ritchie remains on Indiana's Death Row.
