Klaas Jurors Debating Over Death Penalty

Jurors in the Richard Allen Davis penalty trial ended their second full day of deliberations Wednesday without reaching a verdict on whether Davis should be executed.

Davis, 42, was convicted June 18 of first-degree murder for kidnapping and strangling 12-year-old Polly Klaas of Petaluma in 1993.

Because the jury found Davis guilty of special circumstances, he is eligible for only two sentences: death by lethal injection or life in prison without parole. Jurors will resume deliberations today.
