Ex-New Orleans cop sentenced to death

Seattle Post Intelligencer

BATON ROUGE, La. -- A former New Orleans policeman was sentenced to death again for ordering the murder of a woman who filed a brutality complaint against him.

Len Davis was convicted in 1996 of violating the civil rights of Kim Groves by having her killed.

At the time of Groves' murder in October 1994, Davis was the target of an FBI drug sting that included a tap on his telephone. His call to a convicted hitman was recorded. So was his reaction to news that Groves had been shot.

Eleven police officers were convicted in the drug sting, including Davis, who got an additional sentence of life in prison.
