Officer Gary Bevel was shot six times and killed as he attempted to arrest a woman who had made a false report about damage to her car.

The suspect was sentenced to death in four separate trials, but each sentence was overturned by the Florida Supreme Court and her sentence was subsequently commuted to life in prison with the eligibility of parole. In February 2007 her parole request was denied. Her parole was denied again in 2011.
