Man Faces Sentencing for Role in Officer’s Killing

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) _ An Indianapolis man who provided a loaded handgun to a career criminal who used it to kill a police officer faces up to 10 years in prison in the case.
  Eric Jenkins is scheduled to be sentenced Thursday afternoon in federal court in Indianapolis. The 54-year-old pleaded guilty in April to being a felon in possession of a firearm.
  Prosecutors say Jenkins provided the handgun to Thomas Hardy, a convicted felon who used it to shoot Indianapolis police Officer David Moore during a January 2011 traffic stop. The 29-year-old Moore died three days later.
  Hardy pleaded guilty last year and was sentenced to life in prison without parole.
  State prison officials say Hardy was on parole and had been erroneously released from jail weeks before Moore's killing.
