Ronell Wilson, 31, was convicted of killing undercover detectives Rodney Andrews and James Nemorin on Staten Island in 2003. The two were posing as gun buyers.
A New York City jury ruled Wednesday that Ronell Wilson should receive the death penalty for the murder of two NYPD detectives.
Multiple NYPD officers have been charged with corruption in recent years, on allegations that they misused the FBI-operated National Crime Information Center to snoop on other officers, or even to get information on people they might rob.
It was an important day Tuesday for the NYPD, as 43 officers were honored for their bravery – six of whom had been shot.
