VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) - A man accused in the murder of a Norfolk police officer will be tried for capital murder.
Tuesday morning, it was announced Raymond Perry will face a capital murder trial in the death of Norfolk Officer Victor Decker in October 2010.
Decker was off-duty at the time of the shooting, which officials say stemmed from a robbery. His body was found next to his truck in Virginia Beach.
The judge also granted Perry's public defender Greg Turpin's request to steph down from the case. Turpin is running for Virginia Beach Commonwealth's Attorney. If he were to win, it would create a conflict because he would be representing a man he must prosecute.
Camden County Sheriff Tony Perry said that during the last two weeks, incidents of breaking and entering and home or vehicle larceny have increased in two areas of the county.
A Facebook post helped Elizabeth City Police identify and locate the suspect of a hit-and-run incident involving a 3-year-old this week.
