Levi King's fate now in jury's hands

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Levi King's fate is now in the hands of a Lubbock jury.

King, 27, faces the death penalty for the September 2005 murder of a Pampa family. King confessed to shooting Brian Conrad, his pregnant wife Michell, and her 14-year-old son Zach. Michell's 10-year-old daughter Robin was the sole survivor.

Closing arguments wrapped up Monday evening. For more than a month the prosecution and the defense have gone back and forth in the sentencing phase.

The prosecution urged that an appropriate sentence for King was death. The defense urged the jury that a sentence of the life without parole is the right punishment, given the way King was raised. They asked the jury not to think of revenge but what is right in this situation. The prosecution argued that a death penalty is not revenge, but justice.

The prosecution ended their closing statements, with the emotional 911 call jurors heard on the very first day of trial. The call was made from sole survivor, then 10-year-old Robin Doan.

Family members of the victims, including Robin, were in the courtroom Monday and were very emotional during closing arguments. King showed no emotion.

The jury has been sequestered on Monday evening; they will begin deliberations Monday morning.
