Man Gets Life In Prison For Killing Salt River Police Officer


PHOENIX — A man was sentenced to life in prison Monday for his conviction in the shooting death of a tribal police officer during a late-night traffic stop on the outskirts of Phoenix.

Elijah Loren Arthur received the sentence in the May 2014 killing of Officer Jair Cabrera of the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community at a gas station.

Arthur fired the shots that killed the officer, while another man has acknowledged driving the vehicle and providing the rifle used in the attack. The other man has pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and was sentenced to 27 years in prison.
