Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty in the shooting death of a Panama City Beach police sergeant.
A 22-year-old Milwaukee man on a spring break drinking binge is charged with killing 34-year-old Kevin Kight during a traffic stop on Easter.
Deputy Public Defender Walter Smith says he took the decision against Robert Bailey for granted. Smith says he is not even concentrating on the guilt or innocence part of trial, instead focusing on the penalty phase.
Bailey is accused of shooting the officer twice with a gun pulled from under the seat. Kight stopped the vehicle for a traffic violation on a beachfront street lined with hotels and condominiums filled with tourists.
