Cop killer admits to feeling good about murder, received life. Wtf?!
St. Louis (KSDK) -- A St. Louis County jury, deliberating the future of an admitted cop killer since Thursday, has reached a decision on his sentence.
The jury has recommended to the judge that Todd Shepard should be sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
As Shepard was escorted out the courtroom he was heard shouting epithets at St. Louis County Prosecutor Bob McCulloch.
During the penalty phase of the trial Shepard's sister, Sarah, asked the jury to spare his life.
In his closing argument, prosecutor Bob McCulloch told the jury, "This will be one of the most difficult decisions of your life. I urge you to return a sentence of death."
Defense attorney Robert Steel said Shepard was mentally ill.
"Who do you send a message to by killing the mentally ill?" Steel asked. "No matter who does the killing, it's wrong."
Shepard testified during the penalty phase of the trial and said he takes full responsibility for killing Sgt. King on Halloween night in 2008. He said he felt good about the murder and felt justice had been done. He said he thinks you have the right to kill an oppressor.
Shepard also spoke out in court earlier on Friday, but not from the witness stand. There was an audible gasp from spectators in the courtroom when Shepard stood up and called McCulloch a derogatory term, which included the word mother. He then sat back down.
