By Andy Furillo

A Sacramento Superior Court jury voted today that Glenn Wade Jennings (photo left) should be sentenced to death for the June 2, 2004, liquor store robbery murder of Kulwant Sufi.

One juror interviewed outside the courtroom said the "viciousness" of the killing and the fact that Jennings, 57, began stabbing the 61-year-old woman before she ever had a chance to give him money out of the cash register or defend herself figured strongly in his own decision to impose the death sentence.

Jennings attacked Sufi in the family-owned store on Florin Road. Sufi suffered stab wounds to the heart, coronary artery, lungs, arms and breast.

Jennings is scheduled to be sentenced Oct. 22 by Judge Maryanne G. Gilliard.
