Randall County Seeks Death Penalty In Retrial

By Jeff Todd

Amarillo, Texas- It was nearly 20 years ago when an Amarillo man was murdered, and Monday the sentencing phase for his killer will be tried again.

Brent Ray Brewer was originally convicted of murder in the 1990's but a series of appeals led the case to the Supreme Court.

In 2007, justices said the jurors in the original case were given bad instructions so the sentence was thrown out.

Brewer is still a convicted murderer, but on Monday Randall County will once again ask for the death penalty to be given to him.
