Jurry Suggests Death Penalty For Virginia Man

August 4, 2007

A jury has recommended a death sentence for a man convicted of killing two Prince William County men during a 2002 shooting rampage that stretched from Northern Virginia to New York City.

Twenty-five year-old Joshua Andrews was found guilty of murder and other charges in the shootings of three men in a Dumfries apartment he had robbed. Two of the men were killed.

He and another man have already been convicted in the shooting and wounding of two other men in New York City. They're also accused of shooting and wounding a store clerk in Stafford County.

The death sentence came after jurors deliberated six hours over two days.

Andrews will be sentenced on November 5th. Prince William Circuit Court Judge Rossie Alston Junior can impose a death sentence or reduce the penalty to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
