ODESSA - It's been more than a year since the death of three Odessa Police officers, but on Thursday a court hearing will look at how to divide nearly $500,000 in the OPD benevolence fund.

District Judge Stacy Trotter, in the 244th District Court, must figure out how to split the money between the estates of Corporals Arlie Jones, Scott Gardner, and Abel Marquez.

None of the officers shot and killed during the domestic disturbance call last September had wills.
