A Kansas jury decided that James Kraig Kahler should be sentenced to death after he was found guilty of murder in the deaths of his estranged wife, her mother and his two teenage daughters on Nov. 28, 2009. The prosecution and defense offered final arguments Monday before the jury reached its decision. The verdict in the penalty phase of the trial was announced at Osage County District Court in Lyndon, Kan.
