The jury’s recommendation came after seven hours of deliberations over two days, ending a three-month trial that included videos and photos from the massacre and heart-wrenching testimony from victims ‘ family members Under Florida law, a death sentence requires a unanimous vote on at least one count. Circuit Judge Elizabeth Scherer will formally issue the life sentences on November 1.

Cruz, 24, pleaded guilty a year ago to murdering 14 students and three staff members and wounding 17 others on February 14, 2018. Cruz said he chose Valentine’s Day to make it impossible for students to celebrate the holiday ever again. The massacre is the deadliest mass shooting that has ever gone to trial in the US.

Nine other people in the US who fatally shot at least 17 people died during or after their attacks by suicide or police gunfire. The suspect in the 2019 massacre of 23 at a Texas, Walmart is awaiting trial.
