DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM/AP) - A jury has returned a death sentence for a North Texas man convicted of drowning his two young sons.

Closing arguments began early Thursday for Naim Rasool Muhammad.  Jurors had to choose between the death penalty or a sentence of life imprisonment without parole.

Muhammad had insisted on testifying in his own defense; defense attorney Paul Johnson persuaded him not to.

The Dallas County jury has found Muhammad guilty of capital murder in the drowning of 5-year-old Naim and 3-year-old Elijah in a creek in August 2011. Muhammad told police he was mad at the children’s mother for breaking up with him.
