Life or death? Sentencing hearing begins for Markeith Loyd

Markeith Loyd's sentencing hearing is scheduled to begin Monday in Orange County.

A jury convicted Loyd of murdering Orlando Police Lieutenant Debra Clayton.

Jurors will decide between life in prison or the death penalty. They must vote unanimously for a death sentence. 

Loyd testified that he shot Clayton in self-defense and that he did not intend to kill her. Loyd’s attorneys have argued that he was insane when he shot Clayton.
