ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Authorities want the courts to deny bond for the suspect in last week's fatal shooting of an Orlando police officer.

An affidavit filed Wednesday with the Orange County Clerk of Courts shows authorities want to make sure 41-year-old Markeith Loyd remains in custody.

Loyd arrested Tuesday night after a manhunt that lasted more than a week.

Loyd is accused in the killing of Lt. Debra Clayton outside a Wal-Mart store last week and in the death of his ex-girlfriend, Sade Dixon, last month.

Authorities say Loyd's face was bloodied when he resisted officers taking him into custody. He was hospitalized overnight.
