The Ohio Supreme Court has heard arguments for and against the death sentence given a man convicted in the slayings of his two children and former mother-in-law.
They also argue two potential jurors who said they supported the death penalty should have been removed, and evidence presented during trial such as crime scene photographs was inflammatory.
Prosecutors disagree that publicity affected the case. They say Mammone was entitled to an impartial jury, not one that had never heard of the slayings.
The court heard arguments Wednesday in Columbus, with a decision to follow in several weeks.
