CHESAPEAKE, Va. (AP) -- A jury in Chesapeake will decide the fate of a Virginia man convicted in the slaying of a Mormon missionary and the wounding of another.

James Boughton Jr. faces up to life in prison after being convicted Friday in the shootings. The sentencing phase was scheduled to begin Monday. The 22-year-old was convicted of first-degree murder in the January 2006 slaying of Morgan W. Young of Bountiful, Utah. Boughton also was convicted in the shooting of Joshua Heidbrink of Greeley, Colo. Heidbrink recovered and testified at Boughton's trial.

The missionaries for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints were shot while knocking on doors in the southeast Virginia city.
