Now the sentencing of 57-year-old Kevin Daigle in the killing of Trooper Steven Vincent will take a few more days.
Dash cam video showed Vincent trying to help an intoxicated Daigle, who was in a truck on the side of a road in 2015.
Daigle pulled out a sawed off shotgun and shot Vincent in the head. Samaritans subdued Daigle and called for help on Vincent’s radio.
Jurors convicted Daigle Tuesday after hearing a recording of him telling Vincent he was going to die.
Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty. The defense said it needs until Saturday to assemble witnesses.
