Memphis Man Sentenced To Death For 2012 Killings Of 3

CREATED Jun 16, 2014

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - A jury has sentenced a Memphis man to death for killing his girlfriend and her parents more than two years ago.

Jurors deliberated for about two hours Sunday afternoon after the conclusion of a sentencing hearing for 31-year-old Sedrick Clayton.

Shelby County Criminal Court Judge Carolyn Wade Blackett read the death penalty verdict aloud.

The 12 person jury convicted Clayton on Saturday of first-degree murder in the fatal shootings of 23-year-old Pashea Fisher and her parents in the Fishers' home on Jan. 19, 2012.

The jury also had the option of giving Clayton a life sentence.
