A man convicted of killing a homeowner with an ax could be sentenced to death.
A Butler County jury found 26-year-old Victor Gantt guilty last week of killing
75-year-old Leroy Jones last May at Jones' Middletown home.
Jurors will decide whether to recommend that Gantt die for his crimes or
sentence him to life in prison.
If jurors recommend death, the judge can still sentence Gantt to life in
prison, but judges rarely ignore jury recommendations.
