Cop killer to be sentenced today
CHICAGO — Friday is sentencing day for a convicted cop killer.
Brandon Jackson, of Bellwood, was found guilty in January, of murdering a Cook County sheriff’s officer.
Cuauhtemoc Estrada was gunned down outside a Christmas party in 2013 while defending his daughter and her boyfriend from a robber.
Hundreds of law enforcement officials attended Estrada’s funeral procession outside Holy Name Cathedral.
Estrada was a marine corps veteran, and a 20-year veteran of the sheriff’s office.
