CIA Shooting Verdict

n FAIRFAX, Virginia -- Jurors who convicted a Pakistani man of killing two CIA workers in a politically motivated shooting rampage had to decide whether he will face the death penalty.


Defense lawyers for Mir Aimal Kasi, in an effort to save him from death, planned to bring in doctors Tuesday to testify that Kasi is mentally ill and suffers brain damage.


The prosecutor argued during Kasi's trial that the defendant was out to avenge U.S. bombing of Iraq during the Gulf War and U.S. intervention in Moslem countries.


A Fairfax County jury deliberated about four hours Monday before convicting Kasi, 33, of capital murder and nine other charges involving the slayings of Frank Darling and Lansing Bennett and the wounding of three other men in a shooting spree outside CIA headquarters Jan. 25, 1993.
