Man Convicted In Okla. Trooper's Death Being Resentenced

The man convicted of murdering an Oklahoma State Trooper faces resentencing trial.

The trial to determine if 36-year-old Ricky Ray Malone will receive a death sentence or life in prison starts Monday.

The non-jury trial will be in Comanche County District Court.

Malone was convicted in 2005 for first-degree murder in the shooting death of Trooper Nik Green in 2003.

Officials say Green caught Malone making methamphetamine on the side of the road in rural Cotton County.

Malone was originally sentenced to death but, the Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals overturned that decision and ordered a new sentencing trial.
