Jury Recommends Death Penalty for Serrano

BARTOW, Fla. — The Florida jury that convicted Nelson Serrano on four counts of first-degree murder has recommended that he die by lethal injection for his participation in the 1997 slayings at Bartow, Fla.-based Erie Manufacturing & Garment Conveyor Systems.
The final decision rests with Polk County Circuit Judge Susan Roberts. If Serrano is sentenced to death, his conviction and sentence will automatically be appealed to the Florida Supreme Court.
