DEATH PENALTY FOR MEMPHIS SHOOTER? Judge Confirms Death Penalty is a Possibility

Memphis shooting spree suspect Ezekiel Kelly could get the death penalty.

During a court appearance on Friday morning Judge Karen Massey confirmed that Kelly, who shot and killed four people and injured three others, may face the death penalty for the horrific spree.

From Fox News:

Appearing in a Shelby County courtroom wearing a dark blue-colored jail-issued jumpsuit and a face mask, a wide-eyed, serious Kelly spoke briefly to tell Judge Karen Massey he understood he needed an attorney and that he did not have any questions. He is represented by public defender Jennifer Case, the same lawyer defending alleged Eliza Fletcher killer Cleotha Henderson. 

During the court appearance, Massey acknowledged that the death penalty is possible. Case requested a gag order be implemented, and the jurist scheduled a motion hearing for Sept. 13. 

Kelly did not enter a plea and no bond was set during the hearing. District Attorney Steve Mulroy said additional charges against the defendant were likely to come.

Kelly previously served a prison sentence for aggravated assault in connection with a 2020 shooting. He served 11 months of a 3-year sentence and was released in March.
