MaslamaniÂ faces a mandatory term of life in prison without the chance of parole on the murder charge when sentenced.
Earlier Friday,Â KosmalaÂ talked with reporters about what his client was like during the proceedings. He said MaslamaniÂ behaved much like a âferal childâ â he would answer questions and participate in his defense, and then turn around and ask Kosmala âHow are we doing?â and âCan I have a piece of candy?â
A second suspect accused in Landryâs murder, 17-year-old Robert Taylor, will stand trial later this year.MORE NEWS: Ford Making Its Biggest Single Manufacturing Investment Ever To Build Electric Vehicle Factories
