Sentencing for Jason Sharp Thursday

Sentencing for Jason Sharp Thursday

The man convicted of killing a local nurse will find out if he faces the death penalty Thursday.

A jury recommended the death sentence for Jason Sharp last month.

He was found guilty of the rape and murder of Tracy Morris.

Morris was found stabbed to death in her Huntsville home back in 1999.

Judge Laura Jo Hamilton can either accept or override the jury's sentencing recommendation.

That decision is expected to be handed down Thursday morning at 8:30.
