Yesterday, a jury in Clark County District Court sentenced 29-year-old Ralph Jeremias to death for a 2009 double-murder. Jeremias shot the victims execution-style with a 9mm handgun in a Las Vegas apartment. The jury deliberated only a few hours before delivering the verdict.
Jeremias was convicted of the double-murder last week by the same jury. The jury also found him guilty of burglary and robbery. Jeremias claimed that the victims were already dead when he went to their apartment.
There were two witnesses in the case whose testimony damned Jeremias. They said he shot each victim several times. Reportedly, Jeremias had bought marijuana from one of the victims in the past.
