HENDERSON COUNTY (KYTX) -The Henderson County District Attorney begins the process to set an execution date for a convicted cop killer.
Randall Mays has been on death row since 2008 for the fatal shooting of a police officer and sheriff's deputy outside his home.
Last month, a U.S. Federal circuit court ruled that Mays has no absolute right protecting him from execution. This month, district attorney Scott McKee filed a motion asking Mays be executed March 18th, 2015.
A hearing will take place to determine if that execution will be set.
