Jury orders death penalty

June 12, 2008|From the Associated Press

An Orange County jury has voted to impose the death penalty on a white supremacist convicted of killing a fellow gang member for talking about their organization on television.

The jury deliberated for three days before making the decision Wednesday in the case against Michael Anthony Lamb. It was the second time prosecutors had asked a jury to consider whether to sentence him to death or life in prison.

Lamb was convicted of first-degree murder in July for killing Scott Miller, a fellow member of the Public Enemy No. 1 gang. But the jury that found him guilty deadlocked in the penalty phase.

Prosecutors did not seek the death penalty for Lamb's accomplice, who was sentenced to life in prison without parole last August.
