FORT WORTH — Jurors have just one decision left for a man who murdered a convenience store clerk in southeast Fort Worth: Whether the killer should die, too.

On Tuesday afternoon, a jury found Kwame Rockwell guilty of capital murder in the death of Daniel Rojas in March 2010.

The punishment phase starts tomorrow. Rockwell can get either life without parole or the death penalty.

In surveillance video, jurors saw how the victim obeyed all of the robber's demands during last year's crime — but Rockwell killed him anyway.

Robbers also killed Mrs. Baird's delivery man Jerry Burnett.
