  • This morning in Sussex County Superior Court Judge T. Henley Graves sentenced Derrick Powell to death for the September 2009 killing of Georgetown Police Officer Chad Spicer.  Following the sentencing Attorney General Beau Biden made the following statement:
     
    “Justice was done today. Throughout this entire case the Spicer family displayed exceptional courage and their courage is a reflection of Chad’s courage. Tragedies like this can either bring a family or a community closer together or tear them apart. The community rallied around the Spicer family and today Georgetown and Sussex County are stronger than ever.  I want to thank Chief Topping and the Georgetown Police Department for standing with the Spicer family. I also want to recognize the prosecution team of Paula Ryan and Martin Cosgrove for their excellent work, as well as the Delaware State Police for its investigative efforts.”
