Movement seeks death penalty for convicted killer

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - A movement has formed to encourage a Jefferson County judge to sentence a convicted killer to death for the murder of four people in Hueytown.

Randy Syx is leading a letter-writing and petition effort against Judge Mac Parsons, the judge in the capital murder case of Scott Lamar Abbott.  Abbott was convicted October 8 of killing four people in a Hueytown home in 2009.

The jury in the case recommended Abbott be sentenced to life in prison without parole.

Syx has started a petition, asking Judge Parsons to overturn the recommendation and sentence Abbott to death.  In the petition, Syx said there are plenty of legal reasons for Judge Parsons to do so.

Judge Parsons is scheduled to hand down his sentence on December 1, 2010.
