After more than two weeks of testimony in the capital murder trial of convicted Jefferson County courthouse shooter Bartholomew Granger, jurors have decided the self-described “Mr. Hyde” will be put to death.
The death penalty for Granger comes after a week’s worth of recorded jailhouse phone conversations were presented to jurors during the sentencing phase of the trial. This prompted Granger to make sudden outbursts, cursing at jurors and attorneys in open court. As a result, Granger’s defense questioned their client’s sanity.
