28 February 2020 :
Palm Beach County jurors recommend death sentence for Marlin Joseph. It's been 18 years since a Palm Beach County jury recommended a death sentence for a defendant. During a sentencing hearing, jurors unanimously recommended the death penalty for 28-year-old Marlin Joseph, who was convicted on Monday for murdering a mother and her 11-year-old daughter more than 2 years ago. Judge Cheryl Caracuzzo will decide whether to agree to that death sentence -- the 1st recommended by a Palm Beach County jury since 2002 -- or sentence Joseph to life in prison. She set a hearing for April 23. Police said Joseph shot and killed 36-year-old Kaladaa Crowell and her 11-year-old daughter, Kyra Inglett, at a home on Dec. 28, 2017. Prosecutors said Joseph was angry about how the 11-year-old girl was treating his 8-year-old daughter.
