HAYNEVILLE, Ala. (AP) - An Alabama man has been convicted of capital murder in the killings of 9-year-old twins and their caretaker more than five years ago.
Records show Lowndes County jurors convicted 28-year-old Deandra Marquis Lee of Montgomery on Thursday in the slayings of Taylor and Jordan DeJerinett. He was also convicted of killing a 73-year-old Jack Mac Girdner, who was caring for them for their mother.
An order from Circuit Judge Terri Bozeman Lovell says jurors will begin Monday considering whether to recommend a sentence of life without parole or death for Lee.
Authorities think the slayings happened on a dirt road where the bodies were found in Lowndes County in 2012.
Lee previously was acquitted of capital murder and other charges in a shooting in Dallas County in 2008.
