William Darby, Huntsville police officer convicted of murder resigns from HPD



HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — On Friday, Huntsville Police Officer William Darby resigned more than two months after being convicted of murder.

Darby voluntarily resigned and was not fired, according to two Huntsville City Council members.

He was convicted for the murder of Jeffrey Parker, a suicidal man shot by Darby during a confrontation with police in 2018.

Following the murder, Darby was placed on administrative leave and then paid accrued leave.

Despite a jury finding him guilty of murder in May, Darby has remained on the Huntsville Police Department (HPD) payroll.

Darby is set to be sentenced on August 20, 2021.

News 19 made several inquiries to the city of Huntsville and HPD and received no official response from either.
