We're learning new information about the case of a man accused of shooting and killing a Huntsville police officer.
LaJeromeny Brown is currently behind bars at the Madison County Jail for shooting and killing STAC agent Billy Clardy III. We've learned his lawyers have filed a motion requesting Brown to return to the crime scene. They argue the case is too complicated for Brown to properly explain to them what happened.
According to court documents, Brown's lawyers say they need him to walk them through the crime scene so they can collect their own evidence of the scene, and they want it done in a way where an officer can't hear them.
They argue that if Brown isn't given the opportunity to do this, it would be a denial of due process of law. They've given the state seven days to respond.
The state only took one day to respond, filing a motion to reject Brown's lawyer's motion, saying the state rejected a similar motion in the past.
We also learned the Madison County District Attorney's Office filed a lawsuit against Brown's vehicle, which is currently in the possession of the Huntsville Police Department for safekeeping. They're asking for the vehicle to become their property and to be used for law enforcement needs.
