Donna Moonda Sentencing: More Testimony On Possible Death Sentence

AKRON, Ohio (AP) - Testimony continues today in Akron federal court on whether a Pennsylvania woman convicted of murder-for-hire should get the death penalty.

Donna Moonda has been found guilty of hiring a lover to gun down her wealthy doctor husband two years ago along the Ohio Turnpike.

During the sentencing phase of Moonda's trial, a forensic psychologist is expected to testify today about her mental state.

The jury is expected to begin deliberations tomorrow.

The defense notes that the shooter got only 17-and-a-half years in prison and argues Moonda doesn't deserve to die.

But prosecutors say she encouraged her lover to kill her husband with promises she'd share half her multi-(m) million dollar inheritance.
