A jury is to resume considering Monday whether Jose Sandoval’s crime merit the death penalty.

Last week, the same jury found Sandoval guilty of five counts of first-degree murder in the slaying of five people in a Norfolk bank last year.

Madison County Attorney Joe Smith opened the sentencing trial by telling jurors he will present evidence showing 25 factors that warrant the death penalty for Sandoval.

Sandoval’s attorney, Madison County Public Defender Harry Moore, warned jurors they will likely view evidence during this phase that is even more graphic than what they saw during Sandoval’s trial.

The jury took a break in the sentencing trial last week to celebrate the Thanksgiving Holiday.
