Defense attorneys are calling on experts to convince a jury that the man convicted of killing a Coeur d’Alene police officer should not receive the death penalty.
The options are now down to two for convicted cop killer Jonathan D. Renfro and neither will allow him to leave prison alive.
After deliberating for about four hours on Thursday, the jury arrived at the Kootenai County Courthouse on Friday ready to announce its decision. It found Jonathan D. Renfro, 29, guilty of first-degree murder for shooting Coeur d’Alene Police Sgt. Greg Moore in the face on May 5, 2015. It also found him guilty of robbery, concealing evidence and removing a gun from a police officer.
The last piece of evidence the jury viewed Wednesday was a frame-by-frame slide presentation showing the last things Coeur d’Alene Police Sgt. Greg Moore saw before a bullet struck him in his mouth during his encounter with suspected shooter Jonathan D. Renfro.
Coeur d’Alene Police Sgt. Greg Moore reached out, and according to expert defense witnesses, grabbed either the wrist or lower arm of Jonathan D. Renfro just as the 29-year-old felon pulled the trigger of the stolen pistol hidden in his jacket pocket.
In the frantic moments after Coeur d’Alene Sgt. Greg Moore was shot in 2015, several friends of Jonathan D. Renfro testified Monday about how they sent him text messages to help him avoid the cascade of law enforcement that converged on a parking lot near Stateline, Idaho.
In a short day of testimony Friday, Kootenai County prosecutors showed the jury how they believe Jonathan D. Renfro fired the shot that killed Coeur d’Alene police Sgt. Greg Moore on May 5, 2015. The bullet was fired from a gun concealed in the shooter’s jacket pocket.
It was the kind of crime that a community remembers forever: Following reports of burglaries, a 16-year veteran Coeur d’Alene Police officer enters an area of the Lake City after midnight. The officer encounters an armed man and is shot in the head.
