Lee County jury to consider death sentence

OPELIKA, Ala. (AP) - A jury in Lee County will consider imposing the death penalty on a 20-year-old man after convicting him last week of murdering his infant son.

The 12-member jury was to meet Monday in Lee County Circuit Court to begin the penalty phase in the trial of 20-year-old Barry Lee Jones.

The same jury found Jones guilty on Friday after only about an hour of deliberations. Jones was charged with capital murder, child abuse, sexual abuse, sodomy and rape in connection with the death of his son, Kevin Christopher Jones, and injury to a 3-year-old girl in December 2007.

He was tried only on the capital murder charge.
