Jury convicts man in 3 deaths, arson charge
PURCELL, Okla. (AP) - A McClain County jury has convicted a 30-year-old man on three counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of a woman and her two children.
The 12-member jury deliberated less than four hours Monday before convicting Shaun Michael Bosse (BOSS'-ee) of Blanchard of murder and arson.
Bosse was charged in the July 23, 2010, deaths of 25-year-old Katrina Griffin, 8-year-old Christian Griffin and 6-year-old Chasity Hammer. Their bodies were found inside their burned-out mobile home in Dibble.
Bosse was also charged with one count of first-degree arson in the case. District Attorney Greg Mashburn says jurors recommended the maximum 35-year prison sentence and $25,000 fine on the arson charge.
Mashburn says jurors must still decide whether to sentence Bosse to death or life in prison on the murder convictions.
