PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A Philadelphia jury has imposed the death penalty against a man convicted last week of the execution-style slaying at a car wash.

Thirty-one-year-old Omar Sharif Cash was sentenced Friday by the same jury who convicted him of first-degree murder in the 29-year-old Muliek Brown. Cash is already serving a life sentence without parole for a murder, carjacking and rape in Bucks County.

Jurors in the earlier Bucks County case deadlocked in 2010 on whether Cash deserved a death sentence, resulting in an automatic term of life without the possibility of parole.

Defense attorney Earl Kauffman had hoped the jury would spare Cash by looking beyond his client’s record and considering a troubled childhood that left him to turn to the streets at the age of 6.
