Mass. teen gets 8-12 years for cop's murder


Boston Herald

BOSTON — A "throwaway" teen whose wounded pride precipitated the controversial murder of an off-duty Revere police officer was sentenced to eight-to-12 years in state prison today after pleading guilty to being an accessory.

Derek Lodie, 19, a high school dropout and associate of the Bloods gang, did not trigger the gun that fatally shot officer Daniel Talbot, 30, between the eyes behind Revere High School on Sept. 29, 2007, but acknowledged he triggered Talbot’s death nonetheless by calling in armed backup after the cop insulted him.
