Skylar Deleon was sentenced to death Friday for murdering an Arizona couple by tying them to an anchor and throwing them overboard from their yacht off Southern California.
Deleon, 29, was sentenced to death for killing Tom and Jackie Hawks of Prescott, Ariz. by County Superior Court Judge Frank F. Fasel who was recommended by a jury. DeLeon was also convicted in the 2003 killing of Jon Jarvi, an Anaheim man he met on a work furlough program.
“It is the judgment and order of this court you shall suffer the death penalty as to each count,” Fasel said, adding that he decided to impose the penalty partly because of the horrific nature of the murders. (Source)
