A jury in central Pennsylvania is weighing whether convicted murderer Christopher Johnson should be executed or spend life in prison without parole.
Johnson was found guilty of first-degree murder Tuesday in the death of wildlife conservation officer David Grove. The warden had suspected Johnson was poaching near Gettysburg in 2010.
Grove's relatives are scheduled to make victim impact statements on Wednesday. Jurors have already heard from owners of two stores that Johnson was previously convicted of burglarizing.
Johnson's mother is expected to testify on his behalf. Defense attorneys also say Johnson has an 8-year-old daughter who visits him in prison.
