Death “Logical Conclusion” For Stayner

After 13 weeks of hearing about Yosemite killer Cary Stayner´s tormented mind and methodical killings, one juror says a death sentence was the logical conclusion. The day after deciding that Stayner should die for his crimes, three jurors returned to the scene of the verdict and explained their decision. A 50-year-old social worker from San Jose told the Bay City News Service that the evidence showed Stayner was a cold-blooded killer. The three men spoke to reporters in front of Santa Clara County Superior Court on condition they not be named. Jurors said the fact that Stayner was a predator outweighed evidence of his mental illnesses and troubled childhood. Stayner will be formally sentenced December 12th.
