Later this morning, a Maricopa County jury will announce its verdicts in the first-degree murder case of Donnie Delahanty, who stands accused of killing veteran Phoenix police officer David Uribe (in the photo) in May 2005.

Authorities accused Delahanty, now 22, of shooting Officer Uribe to death during a routine traffic stop near 35th Avenue and West Cactus Road on May 10, 2005.
Delahanty also is facing verdicts on charges that he conspired to kill onetime co-defendant Chris Wilson and Wilson's mother in a plot he allegedly orchestrated from the Maricopa County Jail.
Delahanty could be sentenced to death if convicted of killing the popular officer.
