Bryan Wayne Hulsey trial update: Jury finds aggravating factors in Glendale officer's shooting death

PHOENIX - A jury has found aggravating factors in the trial of a man convicted of shooting a Glendale police officer to death.

Bryan Wayne Hulsey was convicted on Monday of first-degree murder and attempted first-degree murder.

Court officials said the jury found two aggravating factors in the case.

The shooting death of Glendale police Officer Anthony Holly occurred during a traffic stop in 2007.

Another officer was also shot and wounded.

Hulsey, 40, was a passenger in a vehicle that had been pulled over for speeding and not having a license plate.

Prosecutors said Hulsey got out of the car and fired two shots, one of which struck Holly.

Holly was there to serve as backup to another officer who had actually made the traffic stop.

The next phase of the trial will be the penalty phase and it will begin on August 11, 2014 at 10:30 a.m.

At that time jurors will consider mitigating factors and whether they outweigh the aggravating factors before deciding on a sentence.
