Jury Is Urged to Sentence Yosemite Killer to Death

From Times Staff and Wire Reports

A jury that will soon decide the fate of Yosemite killer Cary Stayner was told Monday the former handyman deserves the same fate as his three victims.

Wrapping up the penalty phase of the murder trial, prosecutor George Williamson urged jurors to return a death sentence. Defense attorneys will continue closing arguments today.

Stayner, 41, already serving a life sentence for the murder of nature guide Joie Armstrong, was convicted in August of killing Carole Sund, 42, her daughter Juli, 15, and Silvina Pelosso, 16.
