Hung Jury Forces Life Sentences In Philly Cop's Killing

August 18, 2010  | 

The two bank robbers involved in the fatal shooting of Philadelphia PD Sgt. Stephen Liczbinski in 2008 avoided the death penalty, when a Common Pleas Court jury deadlocked on execution because they didn't pull the trigger, Philly.com reports.

A judge sentenced Eric DeShann Floyd, 35, and Levon T. Warner, 41, to life without the possibility of parole for their roles in the May 8, 2008, robbery of a Bank of America branch inside a Port Richmond ShopRite.

Sgt. Liczbinski, who had been promoted from patrol officer six months prior, pursued Floyd, Warner and 33-year-old Harold Cain in a Jeep Liberty identified via witnesses and surveillence footage.

When the Jeep stopped, Cain exited the vehicle and began firing at Liczbinski with an SKS rifle, as the officer screamed "No, no no!" Cain was shot by officers who caught up with him when his rifle malfunctioned.

More Philadelphia PD officers died in the line of duty in 2008 (four) than any other agency, PoliceMag.com reported at the time.
