After deliberating a convicted killer's fate for six hours, a jury recommended Tuesday that he be sentenced to death. The San Diego Superior Court jury rejected a punishment of life in prison without parole, the only other possible sentence for Dean Carter, during the penalty phase of his murder trial. The same jury last month convicted Carter, 36, a former TV news cameraman in Alaska, of first-degree murder in the April 14, 1984, strangulation of Janette Cullins, 24, of Pacific Beach.
