Orlando suspect faces charges in officer's death

The warrant was released shortly after murder suspect Markeith Loyd appeared in Orange County court on charges connected with Clayton's death.

Bigney noted that Loyd did not have a lawyer present, and asked him if wanted a public defender, but Loyd declined and indicated that he would defend himself against charges of killing his pregnant ex-girlfriend Sade Dixon on December 13, 2016, notes the Orlando Sentinel.

A regionwide manhunt ended Tuesday night when a team of heavily armed officers surrounded a house in Orlando and arrested him. At the time, he was already wanted in the shooting death of his pregnant ex-girlfriend, Sade Dixon, and injuring her brother who tried to help. In the video - which was shot from a police chopper above the scene - Loyd is seen crawling away from a house and toward officers by the roadway. She returned fire and shot Loyd in the chest, but he was wearing a protective vest, the chief said.

While speaking before a judge Thursday at the Orange County Jail, accused cop killer Markeith Loyd said that he plans to defend himself in court.

No charges have been filed yet in the killing of Orlando police Lt. Deborah Clayton.

Loyd was captured with Clayton's handcuffs Tuesday night, and now faces charges for both her and Dixon's killings.


"And then, when they had me in the hospital.they done took my eye, they done broke my nose, broke my jaw, they did all this sh-t saying I resisted, but I crawled out to the mother f-king road so how did I resist", Loyd said. Loyd's face was bloodied when he resisted officers taking him into custody.

When asked if kicking him was necessary, Mina said, "the officers were very concerned about what was underneath him".

Clayton, who reported that she was going to arrest Loyd outside of a Walmart, was shot and killed moments later. Mina said that when reviewing the use of force, officers are judged regarding the "totality of circumstances" and that officials will try to determine what an objectively reasonable officer would have done in light of those circumstances. As he left the courtroom, he spat a curse at her. He was hospitalized overnight.

Mina said the best-trained officers and the SWAT team were called in to make the arrest.

Friday, Judge Jeanette Dejuras Bigney asked Loyd about legal representation, but Loyd only responded with questions.
