Thirteen years after a federal jury in Boston decided a man should be put to death for a three-day killing spree, another jury has just begun hearing the case against Gary Lee Sampson all over again.

Sampson has pleaded guilty to the crimes and left it to a jury to decide his sentence.

After the first verdict was thrown out, lawyers began making their case to a new jury on Wednesday.

WBUR's David Boeri has this report.
