Jury convicts Alabama man of store killing

ANNISTON, Ala. (AP) - A Calhoun County jury that convicted a
21-year-old man of killing a customer at an Ohatchee convenience
store will consider imposing the death penalty.

The jury convicted Jarell Damon Price on Thursday of capital murder in the 2006 shooting death of 62-year-old Thomas Bowen during a robbery.

Price also was accused of shooting at owner Jim Cosper and was convicted of attempted murder.

Prices attorneys did not deny that their client fired the shots that killed Bowen, but said he was under the command of 26-year-old
Bobby DeJuan Jackson.

The sentencing phase of the trial begins on Monday.

Jackson is also charged with capital murder.

No date for his trial has been set.
