In the Know: Jury decides Lakeland woman should get death for killings of daughter, father

A Lakeland woman convicted of killing her father and daughter in 2015 should die, a jury decided Friday. But the decision on whether Cheyanne Jessie, 29, should be on Florida's Death Row is in the hands of Circuit Court Judge Jalal Harb, the state attorney's office, 10th Judicial Circuit, reported. The jury only needed an hour to hand down the recommendation for Jessie, who was convicted Wednesday of killing her daughter Meredith, 6, and father, Mark Weekly, 50, in 2015.
