What a ****ing crock a ****! When you murder someone, the death penalty should be the only ****ing answer!The jury also convicted Forde of attempted first-degree murder in the shooting of Flores' wife, Gina Gonzalez; one count each of burglary, armed robbery and aggravated robbery; and two counts of aggravated assault.
At 10 a.m. today, prosecutors will begin telling jurors why they think the death penalty ought to be considered. They cite three factors: the financial motive behind the crime, Brisenia Flores' age and the fact there were multiple victims.
If the jury agrees, the defense will present evidence for why it believes Forde's life ought to be spared - she had a dysfunctional childhood, suffers from psychological problems and has a history of volunteering for worthy causes.
If the jury doesn't unanimously agree Forde should die, Pima County Superior Court Judge John Leonardo must sentence her to life in prison, with or without the possibility of release after 25 years.
Gonzalez testified during the first day of trial that her husband awakened her to say the police were at the door. The woman at the door identified herself and the man with her as law enforcement officers looking for fugitives, Gonzalez said.
