    KHQ is learning disturbing new details about the shooting of Coeur d’Alene Police Sgt. Greg Moore last May and what the man accused of that shooting has been doing while awaiting his trial.

    In documents presented in Kootenai County Court Wednesday, prosecutors amended their notice of intent to seek the death penalty in the case of Jonathan Renfro. Based on evidence, prosecutors are asking a judge to grant their motion to add aggravating circumstances, which would strengthen their case to put Renfro to death.

    After looking at dash cam and body cam footage, prosecutors say Renfro was attempting a burglary at the time Sgt. Moore was killed. The documents say Renfro was seen taking the officer’s gun and searching for his driver’s license after the shooting.

    Additional attempts at taking the death penalty off the table for the man accused of murdering Coeur d'Alene Police Sgt. Greg Moore fell short Monday.

    But, Kootenai County District Court Judge Lansing Haynes has yet to rule on two others.

    The judge will rule on the 2 additional motions on October 12.

    A Kootenai County Judge denied Jonathan Renfro’s motion to eliminate the death penalty as a form of punishment on Wednesday.

    (...)

    At a pretrial hearing, a judge refused to eliminate execution as a form of punishment. He also denied Renfro’s motion to have his first degree murder charge dismissed.

    (...)

    Renfro’s jury trial is scheduled to begin in February.

    Murder trial details shaping up
    When Renfro, 26, the accused killer of Coeur d’Alene Police Sgt. Greg Moore, faces a jury this summer, more than two years will have passed since Moore was shot while patrolling a Coeur d’Alene neighborhood.

    Haynes solidified a July 31 trial date and allowed for the public defender’s office to select from one of two Idaho attorneys with death-penalty expertise to serve as Renfro’s lead attorney.

    Motions denied in Renfro case
    Wearing glasses with his jail suit, Jonathan Renfro, the man accused of killing Coeur d’Alene Police Sgt. Greg Moore, appeared chatty and upbeat with his public defenders Friday afternoon.

    He wasn't smiling after Judge Lansing Haynes denied a series of the defense's motions, though, including a motion to strike the death penalty.

    (...)

    The trial is set to begin July 31.

    Trial for man accused of killing Sgt. Moore will stay in Kootenai Co.
    The man accused of killing Sgt. Greg Moore more than two years ago and driving off with his car is still expected to be tried in Coeur d'Alene, despite media coverage of the case, though the jurors may be sequestered.

    Accused cop killer Jonathan Renfro pleads to lesser charges before murder trial begins

    Renfro, 28, pleaded guilty Thursday to grand theft and attempting to elude a police officer, according to court records. However, Renfro remains scheduled to appear Monday to stand trial for first-degree murder in connection to the May 5, 2015, shooting death of Sgt. Greg Moore

    Trial for accused cop killer Jonathan Renfro opens in Coeur d’Alene

    http://www.spokesman.com/stories/201...-renfro-opens/

    Today, Kootenai County officials will gather scores of residents to the courthouse to begin the selection of a jury, who will decide the fate of Jonathan D. Renfro, 29, charged with first-degree murder and several other charges in connection to Moore’s death.

    The jury’s task could come in two stages. If it eventually decides during a trial – which could include more than 100 witnesses and dozens of experts – that Renfro is guilty of first-degree murder, it would then be asked in a separate hearing whether the defendant should also face the death penalty.

    Jury selection begins for accused cop killer Jonathan Renfro

    http://www.spokesman.com/stories/201...-killer-jonat/

    They were firefighters, stay-at-home moms and young adults trying to start a career. All of them were among one of the biggest pools of jurors to be summoned in Kootenai County history for the first-degree murder trial of Jonathan Renfro.

    Haynes began the initial questions of the jury selection, which is expected to extend into next week.
    Many faced hardships of missing work, finding child care or finding friends or family willing or able to help them during the trial, which is expected to last five to six weeks. One man said he graduated high school with McHugh and knows him personally.

    “I want to remind you that jury service is your civic duty,” Haynes told the crowd.

    Jurors see body camera footage from Coeur d’Alene police officer shot and killed

    http://www.spokesman.com/stories/201...m-coeur-dalen/

    “While out dressed in dark clothing. While out and violating the terms of his parole, and while carrying a stolen Glock handgun and five rounds of ammunition, (Renfro) shot Sgt. Moore, the one person sworn by oath to stop him,” Robins told jurors.

    “He shot him because he didn’t want to go back to prison. And that is why Greg is dead,” he added.
    Payne noted that a friend injected Renfro with so much methamphetamine that he didn’t know what he was doing that night.

    He feared for his own life when approached by Moore, said Payne. She said Renfro may be guilty of voluntary manslaughter, but not first-degree murder.

    Moore had asked what Renfro had in his pockets and he told him he had cigarettes.

    But that’s when in an instant you faintly see Renfro pull his gun out, shoot, and Greg Moore hit the concrete.

    It was after Moore had fallen, Renfro started patting Moore.

    The state says Renfro took Moore’s pistol and ammo while he lay their motionless.

    Renfro jurors watch dash cam footage from night Sgt. Moore was killed

    http://www.krem.com/news/crime/dash-...rial/478866113

    Prosecutors played three different discs worth of dash cam video in court Tuesday from Sgt. Moore’s dash camera. It began showing Sgt. Moore patrolling a few Coeur d’Alene neighborhoods, then when he comes across Renfro and ends when Renfro ditches Sgt. Moore’s patrol car near the Stateline Walmart.

    After viewing this dash camera footage, prosecutors brought in witnesses that could speak to security footage of Renfro in the Walmart parking lot, as well as law enforcement officers that found Renfro hiding under a semi-truck trailer.

    Jurors get gruesome glimpse of crime scene at trial of accused cop killer Jonathan Renfro
    Several jurors leaned forward with strained looks and put their hands over their mouths Thursday as prosecutors trucked out a parade of photographs showing what a bullet fired only inches away can do to the human face.

    The photos gave a dose of reality back into a death-penalty trial that had so far consisted mostly of documents, diagrams and dialogue directed against Jonathan D. Renfro, 29, who stands accused of shooting Coeur d’Alene Police Sgt. Greg Moore on May 5, 2015. Renfro briefly rocked in his chair as the photos of the slain officer were projected onto a screen.

    State rests its case against Renfro, trial breaks for a week

    http://www.kxly.com/news/local-news/...ek-1/630750594

    The State of Idaho rested its case against Jonathan Renfro on Tuesday afternoon. Renfro, 29, is accused of first degree murder in the 2015 shooting death of Coeur d'Alene Police Sergeant Greg Moore. The trial will resume next Tuesday, October 10.

    The state called its final witness for this phase of the trial Tuesday morning, asking Kootenai County Sheriff's Detective Sgt. Ken Lallatin. Lallatin was one of three investigators in the room during an interview with Renfro after he was arrested.
    The detectives tell him Sgt. Moore was wearing a body camera. There's a pause. They ask Renfro why he shot Moore. “Fear,” he said. Fear because he was violating parole by possessing a firearm, and he didn't want to go back to prison. Fear, because he says Moore placed his hand on his weapon, and Renfro thought the sergeant might shoot him. Those are parts of the argument Renfro's defense will make when the trial resumes in a week.

    A detective asks if his family dislikes law enforcement. Renfro goes back and forth. He says he dislikes law enforcement members who “think they're better” than others because they have a badge. But he says, showing emotion, that Sgt. Moore was a respectful and “really nice” man.

    Jury convicts Jonathan Renfro of murdering Coeur d’Alene Police Sgt. Greg Moore

    http://www.spokesman.com/stories/201...dalene-pol/#/0

    After deliberating for about four hours on Thursday, the jury arrived at the Kootenai County Courthouse on Friday ready to announce its decision.

    It found Jonathan D. Renfro, 29, guilty of first-degree murder for shooting Coeur d’Alene Police Sgt. Greg Moore in the face on May 5, 2015. It also found him guilty of robbery, concealing evidence and removing a gun from a police officer.

    The verdict brings the first phase of the trial, which started on Sept. 11, to a close. It now opens the second “aggravating factors” phase. Prosecutors are expected to present evidence of alleged death threats to jailers and other inmates; and other statements to show he continues to have a propensity to commit murder.
