District Judge William LaFortune sentenced David Ware to death.

A jury recommended the death penalty for Ware last month, after he was found guilty on all counts, including first-degree murder and shooting with intent to kill.

Jurors determined that Ware was responsible for the death of Sgt. Craig Johnson and seriously injuring Officer Aurash Zarkeshan in June 2020.

Ware was also found guilty of four non-capital charges, including shooting with intent to kill, possession of a firearm after a previous felony conviction, unlawful possession of a controlled drug with the intent to distribute and obstruction.

Ware was sentenced to life in prison for the shooting with intent to kill charge, 30 years for possession of a firearm after a previous felony conviction, 25 years for the drug possession charge and a year for obstruction.

Deferential attorney Kevin Adams has already filed his first document in the appeals process. You can read the full proposal here.
