ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. – The case against convicted killer Markeith Loyd went before a judge Monday in Orange County.

Loyd is currently awaiting trial in the slaying of Orlando police Lt. Debra Clayton. The trial was scheduled to begin in May but was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Loyd is serving a life sentence for murdering his pregnant ex-girlfriend, Sade Dixon, in 2016.
