Death Penalty a Possibilty for Degorski
This part of the trial occurs in two phases. In the first phase, the six man six woman jury must unanimously decide if Degorski is eligible for the death penalty. To reach that conclusion, Degorski's crime must satisfy at least one of 20 aggravating factors. Those include premeditation and murder committed during the course of another felony. Prosecutors have the job of providing such evidence.
A final sentencing phase would take place if Degorski is found eligible for the death penalty. His defense give reasons why their client shouldn't be put to death. The prosecution could also call victim's family members. It only takes one juror to vote against death during this phase of the trial, and if that occurs, Degorski gets a life sentence.
