COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A jury has convicted a central Ohio man of killing a pregnant woman in a case that carries the possibility of a death sentence.
The trial of defendant Keywan Tarran Conner for the killing of Tenishia Latham is the first capital punishment case in Franklin County before a jury in nearly three years.
The Columbus Dispatch reported Friday (http://bit.ly/M6IQu3 ) that the 27-year-old Conner was acquitted on a count of attempted murder involving the then-fetus, which survived.
Trial testimony included an account by Latham's husband, Larry, of surviving after being shot in the head in the February 2011 attack.
Defense attorney Larry Thomas had argued no physical evidence tied Conner to the slaying.
The jury begins deliberations June 25 on whether to sentence Conner to death.
