Road to be renamed for slain deputy

JONESBORO, Ga. -- The Clayton County Board of Commissioners has approved plans to rename a Jonesboro road after a sheriff's deputy who was shot to death after a traffic stop.

The Clayton News Daily reports that the board voted unanimously this week to change Justice Center Road at the Harold R. Banke Justice Center to Richard Joseph Daly Memorial Boulevard.

In May, a jury found Jonathan Bun guilty of murder in the killing of 55-year-old Deputy Richard "Dick" Daly after a traffic stop on July 20, 2011.

Bun, who was 17 at the time of the shooting, testified during his trial that he had no idea that a deputy was walking up to his friend's car, so he opened fire.
