Bell County prosecutor seeks death penalty in officer killing

BELTON, Texas (AP) - A Central Texas prosecutor says he'll seek the death penalty against a 49-year-old man charged in the shooting death of a police officer who was serving a warrant.

Bell County District Attorney Henry Garza reportedly said Thursday during a court hearing that he'll pursue the penalty against Marvin Louis Guy. A grand jury in June indicted Guy on a capital murder charge in the death of Killeen officer Charles "Chuck" Dinwiddie.

Dinwiddie and three fellow officers were shot May 9 while serving a drug-related warrant at Guy's apartment. Dinwiddie died two days later at a hospital.

He's also charged with three counts of attempted capital murder. He's being held on a $4.5 million bond.

Online jail records do not indicate an attorney for Guy.
