Arizona man goes on trial in 2007 officer killing

PHOENIX (AP) - A prosecutor says an Arizona man on trial on charges he fatally shot a police officer during a routine 2007 traffic stop told the officer, "I've got something for you," before he fired the fatal shot.

Bryan Wayne Hulsey is accused of killing Glendale Officer Anthony Holly after Hulsey exited a vehicle that had been pulled over for speeding.

Hulsey was a passenger in the vehicle, while Holly was there to serve as backup to another officer who made the stop.

Prosecutor Juan Martinez made opening arguments at midday Monday.

Defense attorneys are scheduled to make opening arguments Monday afternoon.

Hulsey has pleaded guilty to the charges against him.

His attorneys have questioned whether Holly was unintentionally shot by the officer who pulled over the vehicle.
