See WRAL’s report here. WRAL, however, continues to get some facts wrong. The report states: “If the jury decides in favor of the death penalty, it would be the first time in decades that the military has sent someone to death row.” Two death sentences were adjudged by courts-martial in 2005. Two were adjudged in 1996. Three were adjudged in 1993. So within the last two decades, the military has actually sent seven servicemembers to death row.
Here’s an update from the Fayetteville Observer.
Sentencing deliberations will reportedly resume at 1300.
