ST. JOHNS COUNTY, Fla. -- The penalty phase in the Timothy Fletcher sentencing continues today in St. Johns County court.
According to the District 7 State Attorney's Office, the closing arguments will start Tuesday afternoon in the Timothy Fletcher sentencing.
In late May, jurors found Fletcher guilty for the 2009 murder of his step-grandmother, Helen Googe, and today the jury will have to decide if he will get the death penally.
If they come back with a recommendation of life, the judge will decide whether he will sentence today or another day.
Back in 2009, 28-year-old Timothy Fletcher and his partner Doni Brown used a jack to escape from the Putnam County Jail. Police say Fletcher then strangled his step-grandmother and stole her car during a home invasion.
The pair made it all the way to Kentucky and back before they were caught.
The murder happened in Putnam County, but the trial was moved to St Johns because of all the publicity it received.
Fletcher's accomplice, Doni Brown, is expected to go to trial later this summer for this case. He also faces the death penalty.
