Penalty phase for man accused of killing officer

Posted: Updated:
Life or death, that's what a jury will consider in the penalty phase for convicted cop-killer, Bryan Hulsey.

It was an emotional day in court. Jurors heard for the first time from fallen Glendale Police officer Anthony Holly's parents.

Anthony Holly's mother and father both spoke through tears, speaking to the jury and their son's killer.

They described their son as someone who was caring, outgoing, with a loving personality.

As you'll remember a jury last month determined that 40-year-old Bryan Hulsey qualified for the death penalty for the shooting death of Officer Holly back in 2007.

"He called me nearly every day. If he didn't call, he texted. Usually more than once with silly things that were happening to him, with touching things he saw or heard. My phones really quiet in relation to when Tony was here... I worry about my family, always with a grieving mother, that's who they live with now. A grieving mother, I'm not the same person I was, I've not had a day in 7 1/2 years that I've not cried, and I know I will cry every day for the rest of my life, heartache is not just emotional, it hurts physically; it hurts from the moment you wake up until the moment you try and go to sleep," said Nancy Bonner, Anthony Holly's mother.

We expect to hear more witness impact statements as the jury decides whether to send Hulsey to prison for life or give him the death penalty.
