Jury wants death for man who killed estranged wife, friend
ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. (AP) — Jurors have unanimously recommended the death sentence for a Florida man convicted of killing his estranged wife and her friend.
The Florida Times-Union reports that the St. Johns County panel made its recommendation Wednesday for 38-year-old James Terry Colley Jr. He was found guilty last week of first-degree murder. A judge still has to approve the sentence.
Authorities say Colley went to Amanda Colley’s home in August 2015 after appearing in court for violating an injunction for stalking her. Prosecutors say he shot his wife and her friend, Lindy Dobbins, as they begged for their lives. Authorities say Colley also shot and wounded two of his estranged wife’s other friends.
