HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) - Deliberations to determine sentencing for a man convicted of killing two people at a Huntsville restaurant have been delayed due to a juror's illness.
Circuit Judge Laura W. Hamilton told the remaining 11 jurors to call her office Thursday to see if the trial can resume after a sick juror failed to report Monday.
The jury voted unanimously Friday to convict 24-year-old Jamal Woods of capital murder.
Woods fatally shot Tanqueray Beavers and Thurston Turner at a Huntsville T.G.I. Friday's restaurant in 2006.
He also was convicted of attempted murder and first-degree assault for wounding Autora Rogers of Athens and William Reliford of Hazel Green.
Jurors were expected to hear more testimony Monday.
They will vote on an advisory verdict recommending that Hamilton sentence Woods to either life in prison without parole or execution by lethal injection.
