Summary: Alabama convicted cop killer who had pleaded guilty to capital murder to avoid the death penalty for gunning down two police officers during an ambush-style shooting after responding to multiple 911 calls that Barksdale had made from his mother's house in Athens, Alabama in 2004 and whose conviction was found competent to stand trial despite an extensive history of severe mental illness as his attorneys unsuccessfully argued that Barksdale was a paranoid schizophrenic who abused drugs.
