BARTOW, Fla. (AP) - Jurors unanimously voted that a central Florida man should be executed for deaths of two women he doused with gasoline and set on fire during a robbery.
The jurors on Friday also voted eight to four that Leon Davis Jr. should die for the death of one of the women's newborn son, who
was born prematurely after the attack.
Davis was found guilty Tuesday of three counts of first-degree murder.
Prosecutors say Davis robbed a Lake Wales insurance office in December 2007. During the robbery, he poured gasoline over
employees 26-year-old Yvonne Bustamante and 23-year-old Juanita
Luciano and set them on fire. Both died later from the burns, along
with Luciano's newborn son.
The judge will make the final decision on the sentence later this year.
