LEBANON, Ohio (WDTN) – A 19-year-old man found guilty of murder now looks ahead to the possibility of a death sentence.
Austin Myers was convicted Wednesday of murdering Justin Back, 18, in his Wayne Township home back in January.
The same jury will now begin to debate whether Myers should die for his crime. It will convene Monday to hear evidence from prosecutors and defense attorneys about whether a death sentence is appropriate.
Myers and Timothy Mosley, 19, strangled and beat their victim during a burglary attempt.
Mosley testified against Myers to avoid a death sentence.
