    Jury Still Weighing Fate Of Garland Clerk Killer

    A jury in Dallas County entered its second day of deliberations on Friday, trying to determine the fate of a convicted killer. Matthew Johnson could face the death penalty, depending on the verdict. Jurors spent Thursday night sequestered at a local hotel, so as not to be influenced in what is literally a life-or-death decision.

    These same jurors found Johnson guilty of captial murder last week in the death of a Garland convenience store clerk. Johnson robbed 76-year-old Nancy Harris and set her on fire. The vicious attack was recorded by surveillance cameras.

    If the jury determines that Johnson is a continuing threat to society — and there are no extenuating circumstances for his behavior due to his past — Johnson will be sentenced to death instead of life in prison. If the jury cannot reach an unanimous decision about what the punishment should be, Johnson will automatically receive a sentence of life in prison.

    Jurors were allowed to make phone calls to family members on Friday morning, but were closely monitored by baliffs and only allowed to tell their loved ones that they were okay and heading back to court. Deliberations on Thursday lasted for about six hours.

    Man Who Set Garland Clerk on Fire Sentenced to Death

    A North Texas man convicted of capital murder for setting a clerk on fire as he robbed her Garland convenience store has been sentenced to death.

    After about nine hours of deliberation over the course of two days, the jury unanimously sentenced 38-year-old Matthew Johnson to death. The jury last week returned a guilty verdict for the May 2012 death of Nancy Harris.

    On Monday, Johnson took the stand on his own behalf, trying to save his life.

    "I just want to live long enough to see my girls grow up," he said. "I put myself and family in a bad situation and the victim's families. I feel like a coward. I have my day of redemption, and I ask forgiveness from the victims families and for the court to have mercy."

    Johnson is married and has three daughters, ages 15, 11 and 3.

    Jurors can choose between death or life imprisonment without parole for Johnson, who admitted to police that he killed the 76-year-old Harris.

    Johnson poured lighter fluid on Harris as she stood behind the store counter and set her on fire after she had opened the register for him.

    Harris suffered burns over 40 percent of her body and died days later.

    I confess I'm finding it hard to feel anything like empathy for Mr. Johnson.
