Jonathan D. Renfro, who was convicted last month in the shooting death of Coeur d’Alene police Sgt. Greg Moore, learned his fate from a panel of jurors Saturday morning. Their verdict: the death penalty.
A Coeur d’Alene jury on Saturday called for executing Jonathan Renfro for murdering Coeur d’Alene Police Sgt. Greg Moore. The verdict, announced at 9 a.m., came after eight weeks of proceedings and six weeks of court hearings and testimony. Renfro was convicted of first-degree murder on Oct. 13.
Renfro, 28, showed no emotion as the verdict was read; a day earlier, he’d told the jury he would “accept that decision and will support it” if he was given the death penalty. “I’ve taken the life of a man who was much greater than I am. I can never fix that,” the convicted killer said. He shot the officer on May 5, 2015 during a routine stop, and then stole his patrol car; Moore’s body camera recorded the crime, and jurors viewed the video.
