ATLANTA (AP) - A jury will begin deliberating the fate of an Atlanta man found guilty of killing a judge and three other people in a shooting spree that started in a downtown courthouse.
The jury will start considering on Tuesday whether Brian Nichols should be sentenced to death, life in prison or life without
The 36-year-old Nichols was on trial for rape when he grabbed a guard's gun and fatally shot the judge, a court reporter and a sheriff's deputy in the courthouse in March 2005.
He fled and killed a federal agent in an Atlanta neighborhood.
Nichols had confessed to the killings but claimed he was legally insane.
Prosecutors said Nichols concocted his delusions to avoid the death penalty.
