August 31, 2021 - Jury Recommends Life in Prison for Asgeirr ULFR

Today (Aug 31), State prosecutors concluded two days of presentations in the death penalty phase of Asgeirr ULFR's First-Degree Felony Murder trial in the death of Christina Scarr (20). The same jury that convicted ULFR on August 16, 2021, deliberated nearly 4 hours before returning with a recommendation of life in prison. 
While the jury unanimously agreed that the state had proven the aggravating circumstances supporting a death sentence beyond a reasonable doubt, they were not unanimous in recommending the death penalty. Judge Melanie Chase then sentenced ULFR to life in prison without the possibility of parole on each of the three counts in his conviction, to be served concurrently. ULFR was given credit for 1241 days of time served.
ULFR will be transferred to the Florida Department of Corrections to begin serving his life sentence.
On April 6, 2018, Seminole County deputies were called to 1212 Gina Ct. Apopka, FL after ULFR reported a home invasion in which he had sustained a gunshot wound to the foot. He claimed that unknown intruders had wounded him and murdered Christina Scarr. Investigators identified surveillance video and other evidence that disproved ULFR's version of the incident and implicated him in the murder. ULFR was arrested on April 7, 2018, indicted by the Grand Jury on April 16, 2018, and convicted after a week long trial on August 16, 2021.
