After about four hours of deliberation, a McLennan County jury has given the death penalty to a Waco man they convicted of capital murder.

Rickey Cummings is charged with a March 2011 Lakewood Villas apartment shooting, located at 1601 Spring Street in Waco. 17-year-old Tyus Sneed and 20-year-old Keenan Hubert were killed and 20-year-old Dontrae Majors and 22-year-old Marion Bible injured.

Testimony in the punishment phase began Monday and wrapped up late Tuesday evening.

Three other men have yet to stand trial for their alleged parts in the murders.
