After Tremaine Wilbourn was found guilty of murder, the family of slain Memphis Police Officer Sean Bolton rejected an offer that would have sent Wilbourn to prison for life, The Commercial Appeal reports. Prosecutors are pushing for the death penalty, saying that the state has three aggravating circumstances surrounding the case. Wilbourn did not testify during his trial, in which he was convicted of shooting Bolton eight times in 2015.
