Eleven people have testified on behalf of David Zink in the penalty phase of his murder trial – all hoping to convince a jury to give him life in prison, not sentence him to execution. The jury is expected to deliberate today what should happen to the man it convicted in less than two hours earlier this week. Zink killed Strafford teenager Amanda Morton three years ago. He does not denie killing her but says the circumstances do not merit execution. One of thos estifying on the 12th day of Zink’s trial was a clinical psychologist who says research suggests Zink could make a successful transition to life in prison.
