MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Tuesday was a solemn day for the Montgomery Police Department.
It was two years ago on September 30, 2006 that officer Keith Houts died.
Houts was shot two days earlier during a routine traffic stop.
To observe the anniversary, the MPD paused at noon in a moment of silence.
The man convicted of Houts' murder, Mario Woodward, was sentenced to death last week.
