DALLAS (CBSDFW) – The jury in the Erbie Bowser penalty phase of his murder trial has deadlocked on giving him the death penalty.

He was found guilty of killing his estranged wife, during two attacks that led to four deaths nearly four years ago in Dallas and DeSoto.

Bowser was instead sentenced to life in prison without parole.

Bowser was once part of the Dallas Mavericks ManiAACs dance troupe, entertaining fans at basketball games.

Prosecutors have not said if Bowser will be tried in the other three murders.
