Jury considering sentence in OK triple killing
PURCELL, Okla. (AP) McClain County prosecutors have begun presenting evidence to a 12-member jury that will decide whether a man convicted of killing an Oklahoma woman and her two young children should be sentenced to death.
Jurors deliberated about four hours Monday before convicting Shaun Michael Bosse on three counts of first-degree murder and of first-degree arson. The 30-year-old was charged in the 2010 deaths of 25-year-old Katrina Griffin, 8-year-old Christian Griffin and 6-year-old Chasity Hammer.
Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty and presented opening statements on Tuesday to the jury of nine women and three men and began questioning witnesses in the penalty phase of the trial.
Bosse faces possible sentences of death or life in prison on the murder convictions. Jurors recommended a 35-year prison sentence for the arson conviction.
