TULSA, OK -- Tulsa County jurors convicted 45-year-old Victor Miller in a nine-year-old double murder.  On Monday, they'll begin deciding his fate.  Prosecutors are asking for the death penalty.

Investigators say Miller and another man carjacked Mary Bowles from a mall parking lot back in August 1999.  They say the two drove her to a secluded area.  Jerald Thurman just happened upon Bowles and her abductors.  Police say the suspects shot and killed both Bowles and Thurman.

This is Miller's third trial.  And, Thurman's widow hopes it'll be his last.

"We just pray to God that he'll give us the strength to get through it and that justice will be done," said Sherry Thurman.
