A Pottawatomie County jury has recommended a death sentence for a man convicted of murdering a police officer following a 2017 traffic stop. Reportedly, 38-year-old Byron James Shepard was convicted of fatally shooting Tecumseh Police Officer Justin Terney. Defense attorneys urged leniency because they said Shepard was verbally, sexually, and physically abused as a child.
