Officer Shot Update

The 30 year old man accused of killing a Colorado Springs police officer now faces a first degree murder charge.

Jereme Lamberth also was charged yesterday with six other charges in connection with the February 22nd shooting of 30 year old Jared Jensen.

Jensen was trying to arrest Lamberth, who was wanted for allegedly stabbing his sister.

Lamberth now faces an attempted first degree murder charge and eight other crimes in connection with that case.

Assistant District Attorney Amy Mullaney says prosecutors are considering whether to seek the death penalty.

Lamberth is scheduled to be in court again on April third, when a date will be set for a preliminary hearing.
