                  Jury sends Corrothers to death row

                  Blog: A female juror openly wept as Circuit Court Judge Andrew Howorth read the jury’s verdict sentencing Caleb Corrothers to the death sentence.

                  Corrothers was convicted Thursday night of killing Frank and Taylor Clark and wounding Tonya Clark in July 2009 in the Clark’s home off Bell River Road.

                  Corrothers was out on parole for six weeks when he killed the Clarks, apparently over drugs and money. He has served 10 years in prison on four counts of armed robbery.

                  Defense attorneys tried to convince the jury that Corrothers’ bad childhood, living in poverty and without a father figure, set him on a path that led him to the courtroom facing the death penalty. The state told the jury it was just excuses and that Corrothers should be held responsible for the choices he’s made. (May 20, 2011)
