On June 17, a Nueces County Jury of nine women and three men found Gary David Green guilty of the Capital Murder of Deputy Sheriff Billy Kennedy Jr. The same jury also assessed the death penalty on Green.

“Deputy Billy ‘Bubba’ Kennedy, Jr.’s death in 2013 was a tragic loss to his family, Upton County, Pecos County, and the law enforcement community,” said 112th District Attorney Laurie K. English. “Deputy Bubba Kennedy and I worked together in Pecos and Upton Counties during my tenure as District Attorney until his death. In addition to being a dedicated law enforcement officer, Bubba was a devoted father, a faithful husband, a loving son, and a loyal friend.”

English further stated that every law enforcement officer killed in the line of duty leaves a void which can never be filled. “The increasing attacks on the men and women who protect us each day requires us to be ever-vigilant in seeking the ultimate penalty for these tragic murders,” said English.
