COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho -

A plea deal could be a possibility for Jonathan Renfro, the man accused of killing Coeur d'Alene Police Sgt. Greg Moore in May. Renfro appeared in court Wednesday for his arraignment, however before that, arguments were heard about the possibility that Renfro would be waiving his right to a speedy trial. Renfro's defense attorney, John Adams, told the court that this case could be resolved quickly if state was not seeking the death penalty.

The state has yet to decide whether or not they want to pursue the death penalty and after Wednesday's arraignment they now have 60 days to make that decision. KHQ briefly spoke with Adams who said as long as the death penalty is not on the table then he is willing to negotiate a plea deal.

Renfro chose to "stand silent" when asked what he plead to the six felony counts against him. By default the "stand silent" plea is filed as "not guilty". Renfro will be back in court within 2 to 3 weeks for a motion to extend time for file and briefing. The defense is looking for an extension of 12 months, meaning if granted, a trial may be at least a year down the road.
