WATCH LIVE: Closing statements continue in penalty phase of Parkland school shooter’s trial
Closing statements continue Monday in the penalty phase of the Parkland school shooter’s trial.
Nikolas Cruz, now 24, has confessed to killing 17 people and injuring another 17 during a mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Feb. 14, 2018.
Since a unanimous vote is required for execution in Florida, the defense only needs to convince one of the 12 jurors to oppose the death penalty.
Without a unanimous jury vote, Cruz will be sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
