Slain officer honored on anniversary of his death

PELHAM, AL (WBRC) - Pelham police hold a special honor Friday for an officer killed while on duty.

One year ago, Officer Philip Davis was killed by a suspect after a traffic stop on I-65.

At 4:00 p.m., the department will set up a wreath and photo of Davis in the lobby. The department will also have an honor guard in the lobby with the memorial from four until midnight. That is in recognition of the night shift that Davis worked.

The man accused of killing Davis goes to trial in February.
