Man Found Guilty In Murder Of Nova Professor

This morning a Broward jury returned verdicts of guilty on all ten counts for a man accused of murdering a Nova Southeastern University professor in his home back in 2010.

The jury deliberated for six hours before returning verdicts of guilty for charges of first-degree murder, kidnapping, armed burglary, and arson.

Since this is a death penalty case, the jury will now come back at some point in the near future for the penalty phase of the trial, in which the jury must decide whether to recommend the death penalty or a sentence of life in prison.

The minimum sentence that the court can impose for first-degree murder is life in prison. The court can impose a death sentence if the jury recommends it and the court agrees with the jury's recommendation.
