Jury determine punishment for Austin murder case

A jury is currently deliberating between life in prison or the death penalty for Brandon Daniels. In April of 2012, Daniels shot and killed police officer, Jaime Padron at a North Austin Wal-Mart.

The prosecution and defense parties made their closing arguments on Friday, February 28. In his closing argument, Assistant District Attorney Gary Cobb reminded jurors that Daniels’ crime was premeditated since he brought a loaded gun to the scene of the crime. 

As a rebuttal, defense attorneys said Daniels shouldn’t be given the death penalty because his battle with depression may have lead him to act violently.
