ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Attorneys plan to make their final case in the trial of a man who has been charged with killing an Albuquerque police officer.Closing arguments are expected to begin Friday morning before Davon Lymon's case is sent to the jury.Lymon, who is 38, is charged with murder and other lesser counts in connection with Officer Daniel Webster's death.Prosecutors have sought to argue that Lymon shot Webster in October 2015 because he was a felon in possession of a firearm who did not want to return to prison.Lymon testified that he opened fire during a traffic stop because he feared for his life.He already has been sentenced in federal court to four decades in prison after being convicted of firearms-related charges and other crimes.
