"I have seen the video of Markeith Loyd executing Lt. Debra Clayton while she lay defenseless on the ground," Mina said in a statement. "She was given no chance to live. A cop killer – who also killed his pregnant girlfriend – should not be given that chance."
Loyd is accused of killing his pregnant ex-girlfriend Sade Dixon in December and Orlando Police Lt. Debra Clayton in January.
Instead, prosecutors will seek life in prison without the possibility of parole, Dixon's family said.
Word from Dixon’s family came on the heels of an announcement by the Orlando Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 25 that multiple sources had told officials Ayala will not seek the death penalty against Loyd.
“If this information is correct, this would be an epic injustice to the family of Lt. Debra Clayton, as well as every single law enforcement officer in the 9th Judicial Circuit,” the FOP President Shawn Dunlap said in a statement. "The death penalty is the law of the land in the state of Florida and I believe that if there ever was a case for its use, this would be the one."
When asked for comment about the Dixon family's claim, Clayton's sister told Channel 9 by phone that she had not been told about any decision to take the death penalty off the table for Loyd.
