SEATTLE– The sentencing of the man convicted of killing six members of a family in Carnation, Washington will be announced today.
The jury has deliberations in the sentencing phase of State V. Joseph McEnroe, court officials announced Wednesday. The decision will be announced at 2 p.m., and will be carried live on Q13FOX.com.
Jurors started deliberating the fate of Joseph McEnroe on Thursday. Prosecutors say he is a coldblooded killer, while his lawyers said he was the victim of a manipulative woman who coerced him into murdering her family. His former girlfriend, Michele Anderson, faces a trial in the fall for the slayings which happened on Christmas Eve 2007.
McEnroe was convicted in March.
The same jury that convicted him of aggravated murder will decide if his crimes warrant life in prison without the possibility of parole or the death penalty.
