Trial Set for Early June for Man Charged with Tulsa Police Sergeant's Murder, Officer's Wounding
The man accused of killing a Tulsa police sergeant earlier this year will go to trial June 7, 2021.
David Ware faces charges including first-degree murder and shooting with intent to kill in the June 29 shooting that killed Sgt. Craig Johnson and wounded Ofc. Aurash Zarkeshan. It happened during a traffic stop in east Tulsa.
Ware entered a not guilty plea through his attorney at a Monday hearing, where prosecutors confirmed they will seek the death penalty.
Zarkeshan returned to Tulsa last month from an out-of-state rehab facility and is now on light duty with the Tulsa Police Department.
