Jurors deliberated for a short time Monday before leaving for the day. They're scheduled to resume Tuesday.

Bryan Wayne Hulsey was convicted last month of first-degree murder in the killing of 24-year-old Anthony Holly.

Jurors now are considering whether to sentence Hulsey to death or life in prison.

The 40-year-old Hulsey was a passenger in the vehicle pulled over for speeding and not having a license plate. He was serving as backup to another officer who made the stop.

Prosecutors say Hulsey got out and fired two shots, one of which hit Holly.

Defense attorneys argued Holly was unintentionally shot by the officer who made the stop.
