Defiant Orlando cop-killing suspect interrupts judge in court

Markeith Loyd tells judge he will defend himself during profanity-laced tirade

Loyd is accused in the killing of Lt. Debra Clayton outside a Wal-Mart store last week and in the death of his pregnant ex-girlfriend, Sade Dixon, last month.

In connection with the death of his former girlfriend, Loyd was charged with one count of first-degree murder with a firearm, one count of unlawful killing of an unborn child, one count of attempted first-degree murder with a firearm and two counts aggravated assault with a firearm.

In court Thursday, Loyd refused a public defender and said he would defend himself before erupting into a verbal, expletive-laden tirade about the circumstances surrounding the cases in which he faces charges.

Loyd, 41, was on the run from police since December 13 after he allegedly shot and killed Dixon and injured her brother.

Friday, Judge Jeanette Dejuras Bigney asked Loyd about legal representation, but Loyd only responded with questions.

The suspect in the fatal shooting of an Orlando police officer was captured Tuesday night after eluding a massive manhunt for more than a week, authorities said. She was promoted to lieutenant on the day of her funeral, Orlando police said.

The judge set no bond for the first three charges and a total of $30,000 for the last two, guaranteeing that Loyd will stay in jail pending his trial.

Zayn Malik gets 'love' tattoo amid Gigi Hadid engagement rumors

"I wouldn't believe anything Markeith Loyd says", Mina tells media at the press conference.

Loyd drove the dark green Mercury to Royal Oak Apartments and fired two shots when he saw a deputy approaching him in an unmarked auto, police said. After he stopped crawling, the officers approached him while he lay prone in the street. The camera then pans away.

"He is a coldblooded killer, and we were taking no chances with him", he said.

According to local reports, Loyd is alleging that he suffered several broken bones in his face and may lose sight in his left eye as a result of injuries sustained during the arrest. "After they handcuffed him, and searched him, pulled off his body armor, he had a large bag of ammunition".

Loyd was tossed behind bars Wednesday night subsequent to getting restorative treatment for his wounds amid the capture.

Mina said the best-trained officers and the SWAT team were called in to make the arrest. But Loyd said he planned to represent himself, and stridently disputed the charges.
