Phoenix’s Serial Shooter Gets 6 Death Sentences

PHOENIX (AP) — A jury has sentenced the Phoenix Serial Shooter to six death terms in a series of murders that put the city on edge for nearly two years.

Dale Hausner was convicted earlier this month of killing six people and attacking 19 others in random nighttime shootings in 2005 and 2006.

Friday’s sentence comes a day after the 36-year-old told jurors they should put him to death because it would help the victims’ families heal.

Prosecutors say Hausner preyed on pedestrians, bicyclists, dogs and horses during a 14-month conspiracy that occasionally included his brother and his former roommate.

Hausner is scheduled to be sentenced Monday on 74 other convictions.
