Levi King punishment phase enters closing arguments

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - After more than a month of testimony, the jury will soon decide the sentence of Levi King.  

The 27-year-old pleaded guilty on September 3, to killing three members of a Pampa family in September 2005. King faces up to life in prison without parole or the death penalty.

The jurors must be convinced beyond a reasonable doubt that King will be a continued threat to society. In closing arguments Monday, the defense urged the jury not to seek revenge. The prosecution argued the death penalty is not revenge, it is justice. Closing arguments continue.
