Bobby Baker Sentencing

A jury has once again recommended the death penalty for Bobby Baker, this time on a 10-to-2 vote.

Baker was arrested in 1994 for a shooting spree that left two people wounded and his wife dead.

He was convicted and sentenced to die.

However, the Alabama Supreme Court later ordered a new trial, saying jurors should not have heard evidence of previous domestic violence involving Baker and his wife.

Last week, a Houston County jury deliberated two hours before finding Baker guilty again.

The penalty phase of the trial was held Tuesday.

Judge Lawson Little is not bound by the jury's recommendation.

Final sentencing is set for February 27th.
