TAMPA - Anyone inside courtroom #16 could see the strength of Sara Kocab.
Just one day after delivering a stillborn baby, Kocab came to court to face the man that is accused of murdering her husband, her soul mate, her Jeff.
Kocab was not alone though. Besides a number of Tampa Police Officers, Kelly Curtis, the wife of Officer David Curtis, sat nearby. Just across the aisle, the families of Harold Wright and Derek Anderson wept.
"I miss my brother, and to know that he was taken from me for no apparent reason hurts the most," Antoinette Colbert said.
Colbert is the sister of murder victim Derek Anderson. Detectives say Dontae Morris killed Anderson on May 18th.
Colbert wanted to say something to Morris as he was escorted out in handcuffs, but because she was in court, Colbert stayed silent.
Morris faces first degree murder charges for allegedly killing officers Curtis and Kocab as well as Wright and Anderson.
As Morris' attorney Stephen Fisher entered a not guilty plea for all four murders, Morris had eye contact with no one.
Prosecutors will seek the death penalty for the murder of the two police officers, but not for Anderson and Wright.
Not everyone agreed with the state's decision.
"I'm not discounting anything as far as the officers and their families, but we still felt that he should be given the death penalty for everyone," Matisse Gallman said.
Gallman is the mother of two children fathered by Harold Wright.
While opinions differ on how the state plans to proceed with each case, everyone in court had a similar opinion about Morris.
"I've never felt hate before, and I felt it when I saw him," Gallman said.
Dontae Morris allegedly committed all four murders after he was let out of prison in April.
The next time Morris is in court will be on October 14th.
His attorney, Stephen Fisher, did not give ABC Action News an interview, but told reporter Ellen McNamara that his client is innocent.
