TAMPA — The girlfriend of a man accused of killing two police officers is asking a federal judge to not impose any conditions on her release as she awaits trial.
Cortnee Brantley of Seffner is accused of concealing that her boyfriend, shooting suspect Dontae Morris, was a felon with a gun. Brantley, then 22, drove away after a June 2010 traffic stop in which Tampa Officers David Curtis and Jeffrey Kocab were shot, authorities said.
A judge dismissed the charge against her in 2010, but it was reinstated on appeal.
Brantley previously was ordered to remain home unless she was at work, church, a doctor or in court.
Now that the charge is reinstated, U.S. Attorney Robert O'Neill wants the conditions reinstated, something Brantley's attorney calls unnecessary.
Her trial is set for June.
