25 year-old Gregory McKnight faces the death penalty for the murder and kidnapping of Emily Murray.

That's the word today from a Vinton County Jury.

Murray was a 20 year-old Kenyon College Student.

McKnight also faces 36 years to life in prison for the murder of 20 year-old Gregory Julious.

Authorities found both of the victims bodies on McKnight's property two years ago.

Earlier this year this case gained national attention when it appeared the county could not afford to pay for the death penalty specification.
