Loyd Guilty in all respects, he faces the death penalty
The jury found Lloyd guilty of five counts, most notably the murder of Lieutenant Colonel Debra Clayton in the first degree. According to court filings, Lloyd will be sentenced on November 6. Loyd was convicted on separate charges as well, including first-degree murder, aggravated assault, auto theft with a firearm, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
Assistant Attorney General Ryan Williams told the media on Wednesday that prosecutors have submitted notification of their intent to seek the death penalty.
Clayton, 42, served in the police force as a first sergeant at the time of her murder. The Police Department was posthumously promoted to First Lieutenant.
Lloyd may face the death penalty even though former Attorney General Aramis Ayala in his cases favored the death penalty. Then-Governor Rick Scott removed Ayala from the first murder case.
