JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Lawyers for a man charged with killing a Metro PCS worker are fighting to avoid the death penalty.
James Rhodes appeared in court Tuesday morning, charged with the first-degree murder of Shelby Farah.
Police say Rhodes "executed" Farah during a robbery last summer.
His attorneys say he should not face the death penalty because he is intellectually disabled.
The judge continued the hearing until August 5.
