Arraignment Monday for man accused of shooting officer who was driving him to jail

A man accused of killing a New Orleans policeman is scheduled for arraignment in the city's Criminal District Court.

Online records indicate that 33-year-old Travis Boys will appear Monday before Judge Karen K. Herman to enter a plea to capital murder in the death of Officer Daryle Holloway.

District Attorney Leon Cannizzaro has said he's seeking the death penalty.

Police have said Boys managed to get his cuffed hands in front of his body and reach a .40-caliber handgun with which he shot the officer, who was driving him to jail on June 20.

He's represented by public defenders Christopher Murell and Anna Van Cleve. Murell did not respond Sunday to an email asking whether Boys plans to plead not guilty.
