PURCELL, Okla. (AP) -- An Oklahoma jury has recommended execution for a 30-year-old man convicted of killing a woman and her two children.
The 12-member McClain County jury on Friday recommended death on all three counts for Shaun Michael Bosse of Blanchard.
The same jury convicted Bosse of arson and three counts of first-degree murder in the 2010 deaths of 25-year-old Katrina Griffin and her children, 8-year-old Christian Griffin and 6-year-old Chasity Hammer.
The victims were killed in a fire at their mobile home in Dibble.
Defense attorney Gary Henry told the jury the death penalty would not bring the victims back to life.
District Attorney Greg Mashburn says Bosse deserves to suffer the consequences of his actions.
Formal sentencing is set for December 18th.
