12:07 pm
have nobody trial and go after the death penalty? for there have been nobody charles before and they brought back to guilty verdicts. there have been cases where there are death penalties involved in a nobody trial. but, jurors have a difficult time with that because always in the back of a juror's mind, it's like, i believe it beyond a reasonable doubt but what if? what if she is alive? and we put the sky to death? we can't undo that. it makes it harder for a jury to bring back the death penalty. but what tells me they are heading toward the death penalty is this verdict came back very quickly. i can just imagine the jurors. wire was sitting here talking. look at what we have. the dna. the dna and the women who were kidnapped. guilty. let's move on. let's get to the guilt. that tells me there is a good chance he may get death in this case. >> even if he doesn't, that's not a quick process.
