Widow of slain Tampa police officer still pregnant

TAMPA — The widow of slain police officer Jeffrey Kocab is still nine months pregnant with their first child, a police spokeswoman said Wednesday.

Officials said Tuesday that Sara Kocab, a middle school dean, went into labor. The contractions stopped. She did not give birth and is at home, said police spokeswoman Laura McElroy.

McElroy said the family requested that no additional information about the pregnancy be released.

Kocab and police Officer David Curtis were shot dead Tuesday during a traffic stop. Police say Dontae Morris, an ex-convict who was a passenger in the car, shot them both at close range when they tried to arrest him on an outstanding warrant from Jacksonville.

Morris remains on the loose. A $95,000 reward has been offered for information leading to his arrest, likely the largest ever offered in the Tampa Bay area, McElroy said.
