Sacramento jury finds man guilty of murder; death-penalty hearing next

By Andy Furillo

A Sacramento Superior Court jury convicted Glenn Wade Jennings today of first-degree murder in the robbery slaying of a liquor store clerk on Florin Road six years ago, qualifying him for a possible death penalty.

Judge Maryanne G. Gilliard scheduled the penalty phase of Jennings' trial for Aug. 9. The judge said she expects the testimony in the penalty phase to take most of that week.

Jennings, 57, stabbed Kulwant Sufi, 61, 11 times in the June 2, 2004, attack inside the DK Discount Liquor store in the 8400 block of Florin Road.

"I'm very happy he jury has found him guilty for the things he has done," said Chanan Sufi, the victim's husband.

It took the jury a little less than two days of deliberations to reach a verdict in the case after hearing seven days of testimony over the past three weeks.
