Cortnee Brantley is supposed to begin serving a sentence Monday for her role in a 2010 shooting that killed two Tampa Police officers. But before that could happen, Brantley was arrested by Hillsborough County Sheriff's deputies Saturday for getting in a fight on the way home from a 'going away' party.

A man already serving a life sentence for murder has been convicted fatally shooting Tampa police officers David Curtis and Jeffrey Kocab during a routine traffic stop in East Tampa.

A Hillsborough County jury found Dontae Morris guilty Friday of two counts of first-degree murder. The same panel will reconvene next week to recommend either a life sentence or the death penalty.

She became known as the girlfriend of Dontae Morris -- the man accused of gunning down Tampa Police Officers Dave Curtis and Jeffrey Kocab in June 2010. 

Now, Cortnee Brantley will go to trial on federal charges that she knew Morris was a felon in possession of a gun and did not report it.

Police say Brantley was driving the car when the shooting took place. Curtis and Kocab conducted what appeared to be a routine traffic stop, which ended with the two officers dying by the side of the road.
