A man who fatally shot Memphis’ first female police officer killed in the line of duty was sentenced Tuesday to a total of 40 years in prison on an array of charges.
Twenty-five-year-old Treveno Campbell was sentenced to 25 years for his second-degree murder conviction in the December 2012 shooting death of Officer Martoiya Lang, a 32-year-old mother of four. Lang was shot as she and five other officers attempted to serve a search warrant.
Campbell also was sentenced by Shelby County Criminal Court Judge James Beasley to another eight years for attempted second-degree murder, six additional years for using a firearm while committing a felony and one more year on a marijuana count.
Beasley ordered the sentences to be served consecutively.
Sentences for another attempted second-degree murder count, plus reckless endangerment and additional weapons and drug charges, will run at the same time as the 40-year prison term, Beasley ruled.
Campbell apologized to the Lang family in court.
