TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- The trial of a man accused of killing two Tampa police officers will be held in Tampa with jurors selected in Orlando.
Circuit Judge William Fuente made the ruling Friday for the trial of Dontae Morris. He faces a death sentence if convicted of murdering officers Jeffrey Kocab and David Curtis during a traffic stop in June 2010.
Jury selection will begin Nov. 4. The trial is expected to start on Nov. 12.
Morris was sentenced to life in prison earlier this for another unrelated fatal shooting. Authorities said the shooting happened about a month before the Tampa officers were killed.
