(CBS) - A convicted murderer is scheduled to be sentenced Friday for fatally shooting a New York City police officer during a botched home robbery, CBS New York reports.
Lamont Pride, 28, was convicted earlier this month of second-degree murder in the December 2011 slaying of Officer Peter Figoski. He is facing 25 years to life without parole for shooting Figoski to death, who was blocking Pride's escape from a botched robbery of a drug dealer, according to the station.
Pride was also found guilty of first-degree burglary and aggravated manslaughter, CBS New York reports. He was acquitted of the most serious charge, first-degree murder.
An alleged accomplice, 22-year-old Michael Velez, was acquitted of all charges, according to CBS New York. Two other suspects involved in the robbery are awaiting trial. Another alleged accomplice pleaded guilty and worked out a plea deal.
