Jurors to Decide Clinic Gunman Salvi’s Fate

In the murder trial of John Salvi, the case went to the jury Friday (3-15) to decide if the avowed gunman is insane or guilty of first-degree murder. The prosecution stated that regardless of Salvi’s supposed odd beliefs or eccentric personality, his plans against the clinics were too well thought-out for Salvi not to know that killing two women was wrong. The jury is composed of six women and six men and was to begin deliberations Saturday morning.
