3 convicted in Florida deputy’s fatal shooting

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — Three men have been convicted in the fatal shooting of a Florida deputy in 2006.

<a target=”&mdash;blank” href=”http://www.sun-sentinel.com/local/broward/fl-sb-tephford-verdict-watch-20180313-story.html”>The Sun Sentinel</a> reports that Eloyn Ingraham, Bernard Forbes and Andre Delancy were each convicted Tuesday of first-degree murder and other charges.

Authorities say Ingraham was a passenger in a vehicle that Broward County Deputy Brian Tephford pulled over near an apartment complex in November 2006. Prosecutors say Ingraham used his cellphone to call Forbes and Delancy, who showed up and opened fire. Tephford was killed, and another deputy who responded as backup was injured.

Ingraham, Forbes and Delancy are all eligible for the death penalty. A jury will determine their punishment later.
