Jury recommends life sentence in double murder case

STANFORD, Ky. (AP) - A jury that convicted a young central
Kentucky man on murder charges has recommended he be given at least a quarter century in prison.

The jury in Stanford made the recommendation to the court Monday
after finding Jamarkos Campbell guilty in the February 2002
killings of 20-year-old Ryan Shangraw and 18-year-old Harold "Bo"
Upton III in Lincoln County.

Jurors recommended life in prison with no parole possibility for at least 25 years on the murder conviction with sentences for other convictions to be served concurrently.

Sentencing is scheduled for June 19.

Campbell could not be given the death penalty because he was 16
when the murders were committed.

Three others face trial later in the killings and another man
has pleaded guilty.
