Bryan Hulsey penalty phase: Jury sentences convicted cop killer to death

PHOENIX - Jurors have decided on a death sentence for a man convicted of first-degree murder in the 2007 shooting of a Glendale police officer.

The jury reported its sentencing decision Thursday, the fourth day of deliberations in the penalty phase of Bryan Wayne Hulsey's trial in Maricopa County Superior Court.

He also was sentenced to an additional nine years in prison for attempted first-degree murder.

ABC15's Pete Suratos was in the courtroom and said after the verdict was read Hulsey clapped and said "well done" to the jury.

The 40-year-old Hulsey was convicted last month in the killing of 24-year-old Anthony Holly.

Hulsey was a passenger in a vehicle pulled over for speeding and not having a license plate. Holly was serving as backup to another officer who made the stop.

Prosecutors say Hulsey got out and fired two shots, one of which hit Holly.
