OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - An Oklahoma County jury has chosen a punishment for the first guilty count for the two men convicted in killings of a prostitute featured on the HBO series “Cathouse” and three other people.

The Oklahoma County jury decided Tuesday on a 35-year prison sentence for 38-year-olds Denny Edward Phillips and Russell Lee Hogshooter’s one count each of conspiracy.

The jury still must decide punishment on six guilty counts of first-degree murder related to the 2009 deaths of 32-year-old Casey Mark Barrientos, 22-year-old Brooke Phillips, 22-year-old Milagros Barrera and 25-year-old Jennifer Lynn Ermey. Two of the victims were pregnant.

The jury will be asked to choose between life in prison, life in prison without the possibility of parole and the death penalty.
