'Craigslist Killer' could face death penalty

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

An Ohio man accused of luring men with job offers on Craigslist, then robbing and killing them, has been convicted of aggravated murder and could face the death penalty.

53-year-old Richard Beasley was charged with killing three men, and with attempted murder for the shooting of a fourth man who survived.

The survivor testified during the case about running for his life and hiding in the woods, scared he would bleed to death.

Beasley's teenage accomplice was convicted and sentenced last year to life in prison without the chance of parole.
