LEBANON, Ohio (WDTN) – The sentencing phase for Austin Myers begins Monday in Warren County.
Justin Back was killed in Wayne Township in January. His body was found in Preble County.
Myers, 19, was found guilty of aggravated murder, kidnapping, aggravated burglary, aggravated robbery, theft of a firearm, tampering with evidence, safe cracking and abuse of a corpse.
He now faces the possibility of the death penalty.

The sentencing phase could take up to two days.
