A jury has sentenced Tamir Hamilton to death for the rape and murder of Holly Quick. The jury needed about seven hours of deliberation before coming to their conclusion.
The death sentence comes after two weeks of trial which included the emotional testimony of Holly Quick’s mother, who found her daughter the morning of September 15, 2006.
Hamilton has a May 9th appearance in court for the sentencing for the sexual assault portion of the case.
Hamilton has an automatic appeal of the death sentence.
