DALLAS (AP) - Prosecutors continue to press a North Texas jury to send a man to death row for drowning two of his sons in a creek.

The Dallas County jury is to hear more testimony in the penalty phase of Naim Rasool Muhammad’s trial. The jury took less than 10 minutes Wednesday to find Muhammad guilty of capital murder for drowning his 5-year-old son Naim and 3-year-old son Elijah in August 2011.

Jurors must choose between death and life in prison without parole.

Defense attorney Paul Johnson urged jurors to spare Muhammad’s life, saying his client drowned the children out of fear that they’d grow up to be just like him. Muhammad told police he drowned the children because he was mad at the children’s mother for breaking up with him.
