A sentencing hearing is scheduled Thursday for the man convicted of killing a Toombs County teenager.
Steven Cozzie was found guilty last month for murdering 15-year-old Courtney Wilkes while she was vacationing in Florida with her family in the summer of 2011.
A Walton County, Florida judge must now decide whether to follow the jury's recommendation of the death penalty as punishment.
