A jury in McAlester, Okla., must now decide if Terry Nichols should receive the death penalty for his role in the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995. On Wednesday, the jury took just five hours to convict Nichols on 161 counts of murder in a state trial. He's already serving a life sentence on a federal conviction. NPR's Wade Goodwyn reports.
