After just nine minutes of discussion, a jury found Jesse Earl Scheuing guilty of capital murder and theft of property and has recommended the death penalty. Scheuing shot and killed Sean Adam Cook during a robbery in Alabama in November of 2008 and was brought to justice by Marion County Sheriff’s Deputies and Knoxville Police Officers the following month. After deliberation the jury voted 10-2 in favor of the death penalty by lethal injection. A Calhoun County judge will formally sentence Scheuing on November 9th.
