Cop killer Scott Greene going to prison for life

UPDATE: Scott Greene has been sentenced to two life sentences, and they will be served consecutively. He also must pay $150,000 in restitution to each of the police members' families.


DES MOINES - Scott Greene has pleaded guilty to killing two metro police officers back in November 2016.

Greene appeared in Polk County court on Friday morning, and pleaded guilty to both first degree murder charges. He admitted to ambushing Urbandale officer Justin Martin and Des Moines Police Sgt. Anthony Beminio. He said he did it with malice, and premeditated the act. 

Local 5 has a camera in the courtroom, and will bring more information as we know it.
