      Solicitor to seek death penalty

      The man convicted of killing a Myrtle Beach police officer will face the death penalty, again.

      Horry County solicitor, Greg Hembree said he has filed notice of intent to seek the death penalty against Luzenski Cottrell.

      In 2005, he was sentenced to death for killing officer Joe McGarry.

      Earlier this year, the State Supreme Court ruled the first judge made a mistake.

      The state court said the judge should have allowed the jury the option of considering voluntary manslaughter which is a lesser charge
