BEAUMONT, Texas (AP) - A Beaumont man has been sentenced to death for capital murder in the 2010 deaths of a woman and her 16-year-old daughter.

Jefferson County jurors deliberated for two hours on Monday before condemning 38-year-old Joseph Colone Jr. to a lethal injection for the slayings of Mary Goodman and her daughter, Briana Goodman.

Prosecutors said 41-year-old Mary Goodman had implicated Colone in the robbery of a game room. The woman and her daughter were found dead at their home. A forensic pathologist who performed the autopsies testified that Mary Goodman was shot once in the head and once beneath her chin. Briana Goodman was shot once in the forehead and had a deep cut on her head.
