Man Guilty of Killing Five During a Holdup

November 20, 2002|From Times Wire Reports

A man was convicted of murder and could get the death penalty in the slaying of five Wendy's employees who were herded into a restaurant freezer and shot execution-style during a holdup.

The jury will begin hearing evidence today on whether John Taylor, 38, should die by injection.

Taylor's accomplice in the 2000 robbery, Craig Godineaux, 32, pleaded guilty earlier this year. Because he is mentally retarded, he is not eligible for the death penalty. He is serving five life sentences.
