LEXINGTON, KY (WFIE) -
Lexington police officer Bryan Durman was murdered while on duty nearly three years ago. Now his family is fighting to keep his killer behind bars.
Glenn Doneghy was convicted of Durman's murder after a judge determined he intentionally sped up and swerved hitting and killing Officer Durman on impact.
Doneghy was charged with manslaughter and sentenced to 20 years, but he may be walking the streets much sooner.
"I was thinking about our son, how was I going to explain to him that daddy was never coming home," Bryan's widow Brandy said.
Brandy remembers the night her husband was killed by Doneghy. She remembers officers picking her up from her house and remembers saying goodbye to him in the hospital.
To this day, she doesn't understand why.
"You know my husband put on the uniform everyday to help people and for someone to take his life simply because he was a police officer, simply because he was doing his duty just perplexes me, I can't even wrap my head around it," she said.
Even more perplexing she says, is that because of a loophole in Kentucky state laws, manslaughter is a non-violent crime.
Non-violent offenders are eligible for parole after serving just 20% of their sentences. For Doneghy, that means just four years.
"It's very disturbing that manslaughter in the second degree and reckless homicide are considered non-violent because in order to be convicted of both crimes, someone's life has to be lost. Someone's brother, someone's sister, someone's mother, someone's father, someone's family has to die for someone to be convicted of those crimes," Brandy said.
Bryan's sister Michelle Wiesman, 14 years his senior, says they shared a special relationship.
"He was more like a child of mine," Michelle said.
And she says it's been an uphill battle.
"You know it's a lot of tears and late nights and you know life goes on, it's supposed to. It's tough at times," Michelle said.
Brandy says their fight is far from over.
"I have to spend my entire life fighting to make sure he stays where he needs to be," Brandy said.
The Bryan Durman Act would make second degree manslaughter a violent crime. If convicted, criminals would be required to serve at least 85% of their sentence.
The Durman family is urging Kentucky residents to contact their legislators and tell them they support Bryan's bill.
