Courtney Lockhart, convicted in November of the capital murder of Auburn freshman Lauren Burk, is scheduled to be sentenced today.
Jurors found that Lockhart, 26, had abducted Burk, 18, on campus March 4, 2008, drove her around in her 2001 black Honda Civic and made her disrobe before fatally shooting her. Jurors recommended in a 12-0 vote at the end Lockhart's trial that he be sentenced to life in prison without the chance of parole.
Lee County Circuit court Judge Jacob A. Walker III has two choices in sentencing: life without parole or death.
Sentencing is scheduled for 10 a.m. CST. No cameras or other recording equipment will be allowed inside the courtroom.
