The Death Penalty Is Still On The Table For Hollis Daniels
A former Texas Tech student charged with killing a campus police officer was back in court on Friday, Nov 22, 2019.
In October 2017, Hollis Daniels was only 19-year-old when he was taken into custody by Texas Tech Police for drug possession.
While being processed at the Texas Tech Police Department, Daniels shot and killed Officer Floyd East, Jr.
Prosecutors in the case have said that they may seek the death penalty for Daniels. On Friday in court, however, Daniels' lawyers tried to argue that the death penalty is unconstitutional, but a judge denied the motion.
