The jury in the sentencing trial for 9/11 conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui ruled that he is eligible for the death penalty Monday.
The next phase in the sentencing trial for Zacarias Moussaoui begins on Thursday.
The jury will begin hearing testimony on whether the al-Qaida conspirator should be put to death.
The testimony will include the families of 9/11 victims who'll describe the human impact of the attacks. It will also include experts summoned by the defense who'll suggest Moussaoui is schizophrenic after facing a rough childhood in France.
In court today, Moussaoui sat and prayed silently as the verdict was read. He was asked to stand, but refused.
After the verdict, he said: "You'll never get my blood, God curse you all."
