To be precise, the man is a convicted murderer, and to the options of Life sentence or Death, the Jury decided the Death Penalty because he would probably enjoy being in prison being gay. THAT'S SO STUPID! As if anyone would enjoy being in jail for life. Maybe that juror is a conservative christian and/or Trump supporter...
This is about as idiotic as the way things were when I was in the military. It was believed that a gay man would be easily compromised if captured because the enemy would promise to give him what he wanted in exchange for information. OK. Wouldn't this work the same way if we promised to give a straight man a woman?
The jury in the case of this gay man is very ignorant!
