The penalty is death. John Allen Muhammed should die for his role in one of the sniper deaths.

A jury made that recommendation Monday in a Virginia Beach courtroom. It took them five hours over two days to make that decision.

Muhammad was on trial in the killing of Dean Meyers during the sniper rampage.

Meyers' brother says he thinks "justice has been served."
