It's a sweep, sort of
The jury took about five hours to convict Terry Nichols on all 161 state counts of first-degree murder today, plus a charge of arson.
Around the first of July, the penalty phase should be completed; Nichols will draw either life in prison (which duplicates the federal sentence he's already serving) or execution by lethal injection. The testimony, already gruesome, will likely become more so as the jury weighs the options.
