DEATH PENALTY COULD COME NEXT

Teen Found Guilty Of Muder

A Jackson County Jury convicted 19-year-old Richard Jacobs of murder Thursday.

The teen now faces the death penalty for killing Robert Bruce Martin last year. Martin was shot to death in his home in what prosecutors called a "thrill kill."

A jury returned the guilty charge Thursday afternoon and immediately began deliberating on whether the teen should be sentenced to death for that murder.

Five other people are also charged in this case. Two of them are expected to be tried this fall. No trial dates have been set for the others.
