Accused cop killer pleads no contest to lesser charge, still faces murder charge

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.- The man accused of gunning down an Albuquerque Police officer during a traffic stop has made a plea on some of the charges against him.


Davon Lymon is accused of killing APD Officer Daniel Webster back in 2015. 

In court Wednesday, he pleaded no contest to possession of a firearm by a felon. Lymon still faces a charge of first-degree murder.

The prosecution objected to the plea.

"If there is a plea of no contest, it cannot be used in subsequent litigation. That's what we're very concerned about. We do have subsequent litigation in this case," said the prosecutor.

However, the judge accepted the plea.

Officials with the attorney general's office told KOB 4 that even with the plea, the state intends to present all evidence of the defendant's guilty at trial.

Lymon's murder trial is set to begin in early 2019.

He is currently serving more than 30-years in prison for federal guns and drugs charges.
