POLK COUNTY, Fla. -- A Lakeland mother could be sent to death row for killing her daughter and father.
A jury found 29-year-old Cheyanne Jessie guilty of first-degree murder earlier this week. On Friday, a jury unanimously recommended the death penalty for the 29-year-old woman for killing her 6-year-old daughter, Meredith.
The jury also recommended life in the murder of her father, 50-year-old Mark Weekly, according to the State Attorney's Office.
Jessie stuffed their bodies into plastic bins then hid them behind a neighbor's shed.
A judge is considering the jury's decision of death penalty into consideration before making a final ruling.
