Jury finds man guilty of murdering cellmate
SANTA ROSA COUNTY, Fla. (WEAR) —
A Santa Rosa County man accused of killing his cellmate has been found guilty of first-degree murder.
Just after 2:30 p.m., a jury convicted Shawn Rogers of beating Ricky Martin to death in 2012.
Rogers acted as his own attorney in the trial and also cross-examined several witnesses. He took the stand in defense on Monday.
Rogers, who's serving a life sentence for armed robbery and battery, could head to death row if the jury votes unanimously to recommend the death penalty. He'll be sentenced on Friday.
