ANNISTON, Ala. (AP) - A jury has recommended the death penalty
for Jesse Earl Scheuing, a Georgia man who was convicted in
Anniston on Friday in the shooting death of an Oxford convenience
store clerk in 2008.
The jury voted 10-2 on Tuesday to recommended the death sentence
in the capital murder case. The only other possible sentence was
life without parole.
Sean Adam Cook was shot to death Nov. 28, 2008 at an Express
Mart. The jury convicted the 24-year-old Scheuing, of Waycross,
Ga., after seeing video evidence that prosecutors said showed him
pulling the trigger.
Scheuing's fate now rests with Circuit Judge Malcolm Street Jr.,
who will announce his decision Nov. 9.
Two Weaver residents, James Potts and Tifani Kulp, are to stand
trial later this year on capital murder charges.
