Jurors to resume death penalty deliberations

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) Jurors are expected to resume deliberations in whether a former Hawaii-based soldier receives the death penalty for the murder of his 5-year-old daughter.

The jury is expected to return to federal court in Honolulu Tuesday to continue deciding what sentence Naeem Williams will receive. They can choose a death sentence or life in prison without possibility for release.

The same jury convicted him in April of murder in the 2005 beating death of his daughter Talia.

The jury completed its second full day of deliberations on Friday. The jury has had Mondays off throughout the trial. The judge asked the jurors if they wanted to come in on Monday but they opted to resume deliberations on Tuesday.

This is the first death penalty trial in the history of Hawaii's statehood.
