A New York State trooper was shot dead by an active service Army infantryman while responding to reports of a domestic dispute.
Trooper Joel R. Davis, 36, died after he was shot approaching the property in Theresa, Jefferson County.
The suspect, 32-year-old Justin D. Walters, surrendered to other state troopers without incident.
Walters appeared in court on Monday evening. About a dozen troopers stood at the back of LeRay Town Court as he was led into the room in shackles.
