Man convicted in police officer's murder gets death penalty

PITTSBURGH (AP) — A man convicted of first-degree murder in the shooting death of a Pennsylvania police officer has been given the death penalty. A judge formally imposed the sentence on Rahmael Sal Holt during a hearing Wednesday. The 31-year-old Harrison man also was given two consecutive sentences for weapons charges that require him to serve 10 1/2 to 27 years in prison. Holt declined to speak during the hearing. He was convicted last November of first-degree murder in the November 2017 slaying of New Kensington officer Brian Shaw. Two days later, the jury unanimously recommended that he get a death sentence. Holt has maintained his innocence.
