A former Marine, who prosecutors said was living out his fantasy when he gunned down four supermarket employees, should be sentenced to death, a jury recommended Friday. Zane Floyd bowed his head and listened quietly as the decision was read. Some members of the jury cried. The same panel that convicted Floyd of first-degree murder took less than two days of deliberation to decide his fate. Juror Tim LeMaster made a statement on behalf of the jury, saying their decision had not been easy.
