U.S. Supreme Court to hear Florida case that could change the death penalty

The U.S. Supreme Court will hear arguments in a Florida case Tuesday that calls into question allowing a divided jury to recommend the death penalty.
 
Florida has the second highest death row population in the country and is also one of the only states where a judge can give someone the death penalty even if some jurors disagree.
 
Some state legislators sought to reform that last year but couldn't get the bill to a vote.
 
The case the high court is considering convicted a Pensacola teen of murder back in 1998.
