Renfro defense challenges death penalty

Print Article

A motion was filed Friday by the defense on behalf of Jonathan Renfro, the man accused of killing Coeur d'Alene Police Sgt. Greg Moore, challenging the prosecution's notice of intent to seek the death penalty.

The prosecution filed the notice of intent in December and Renfro's defense attorney plans to file a total of 11 motions challenging the death penalty, "preserving the defendant's rights down the road," according to court documents.

Renfro, 27, of Rathdrum, allegedly admitted to shooting Moore in a Coeur d'Alene neighborhood in May.

Moore had stopped Renfro in the middle of the night as he walked down the sidewalk of the neighborhood, an area targeted by car prowlers at the time. Moore reportedly called in Renfro's driver's license information over the radio shortly before the shooting. Renfro is also accused of stealing Moore's gun and patrol car after the shooting.

Renfro is charged with first-degree murder, grand theft, removing a law-enforcement officer's firearm, concealing evidence, robbery and eluding police.

Renfro's trial is set to begin Sept. 6.
