    FILE - These undated family photos provided by the Zion, Ill., Police department show Krystal Tobias, 9, and Laura Hobbs, 8. Prosecutors have urged a federal jury to impose the death penalty on an ex-Marine who murdered a Navy sailor, saying it's the only adequate punishment for a man who has committed a series of sexually motivated attacks. The jury heard closing arguments Thursday in federal court in Alexandria in the trial of 25-year-old Jorge Torrez. Prosecutor James Trump told jurors that execution is the only adequate punishment for a man who not only murdered Snell but killed two girls in his Illinois hometown. Torrez is charged but has not been convicted in those slayings. (AP Photo/Family photo via the Zion Police Department)
