OH Court Weighs Death Sentence For Killer Of 3
Dec. 11, 2013: Columbus, OH - The Ohio Supreme Court will be hearing arguments today to determine whether or not James Mammone III should be given the death penalty for the 2010 murder of his two children and mother in law.
Attorneys for Mammone argue the trial should have been moved outside of Canton because of publicity about the killings. Defense attorney's also argued that two of the jurors should have been removed because they supported the death penalty and that some of the evidnce that was presented in the trial was inflammatory.
Prosecutors disagree that publicity affected the case.
A decision regarding the arguments will follow in several weeks.
