New video released of the dash cam footage of Ralph Stanley Elrod gunned down two sheriff’s deputies in 2016.

He is now serving life in prison without parole in a plea deal with prosecutors when he pleaded guilty in the 2016 slayings of two sheriff’s deputies.

News outlets reported Elrod would have faced a possible death sentence if his case went to trial.

Prosecutors said Elrod fatally shot Peach County deputies Daryl Smallwood and Patrick Sondron on Nov. 6, 2016, as they responded to a call that Elrod had pointed a gun at a neighbor’s nephews.

District Attorney David Cooke said Elrod later told investigators he shot the deputies because he “did not want to go to jail.”
