DEFUNIAK SPRINGS, FL (WTOC) - Tuesday was the second of the sentencing phase in the murder trial for a Florida man.

Steven Cozzie, 23, was convicted last week on all charges including first-degree murder, sexual assault, aggravated kidnapping and aggravated child abuse in the 2011 death of 15-year-old Courtney Wilkes.

On Tuesday, a 16-year-old girl from Kentucky testified that she was also attacked by Cozzie just days before Wilkes's death. The girl did not come forward until April 2013.

The sentencing phase is expected to wrap up on Wednesday.
