CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Relatives of a man convicted of murdering two people in Cheyenne urged a jury to spare him the death penalty.

Prosecutors are asking a Cheyenne jury to sentence 34-year-old Nathaniel Castellanos to death.

The jury last week found Castellanos guilty of first-degree murder in the deaths of 21-year-old Corey Walker and 25-year-old Megan McIntosh. The jury also found him guilty of attempted first-degree murder against another woman who was shot twice in the face.

The shootings happened at Castellanos‘ Cheyenne home in August 2011. He claimed an unknown assailant did the shooting.

The Wyoming Tribune-Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/O2fO3A ) that Castellanos‘ relatives including his parents, brother and sister testified on his behalf Tuesday. Castellanos‘ sister told the jury her brother is a good person with a big heart.
