A Houston County jury has recommended the death penalty for a man found guilty of capital murder.
23-year-old David Wilson was convicted of killing 64-year-old Dewey Walker in April of 2004.
Prosecutors say Wilson beat and strangled walker so he could steal the man's van and the expensive sound system in it.
Jurors deliberated about an hour and a half Wednesday morning before finding Wilson guilty.
They recommended Wilson be put to death in a 10 to 2 vote and the final decision lies with Judge Ed Jackson.
Judge Jackson will announce Wilson's sentence January 8 in the Houston County Courthouse.
