Baseline Killer Mark Goudeau faces the death penalty after getting convicted of nine counts of murder.
After a five-month trial, and seven days of jury deliberation, Baseline Killer Mark Goudeau has been convicted of all nine of the murder charges against him.

Goudeau faced 72 felony counts stemming from a year-long crime spree that terrorized Phoenicians from 2005 to 2006.

Of the 72 counts, Goudeau was convicted of all but five -- he was acquitted of three charges of armed robbery or attempted robbery, and one count of kidnapping. On one count of sexual abuse, the jury was hung.

Goudeau's murderous crime spree began in August 2005 and continued until June 2006.

He was arrested in September 2006 after DNA evidence linked him to an attack on two sisters in south Phoenix in 2005. For that attack, Goudeau was found guilty of 19 felonies and sentenced to 438 years in prison.

Of the nine people Goudeau murdered, eight were women.

The Maricopa County Attorney's Office says it is satisfied with the verdicts.

From County Attorney Bill Montgomery:

"A terrible scourge on our community has now been held accountable for his crimes. I appreciate the diligent work of this jury and the time they have devoted to hear the case and arrive at a verdict. My office will review whether or not it is necessary to retry the one count on which the jury was unable to come to a verdict. It is now the charge of the criminal justice system to see that the sentences for death are carried out as expeditiously as possible. I am especially proud of Phoenix Police Department as well as the paralegals, support staff and of course the prosecutors of the Maricopa County Attorney's Office who worked on this case. The people of Maricopa County have been well served by their dedication in the pursuit of justice."

As Montgomery points out, Goudeau now faces the death penalty. The sentencing phase of the trial is scheduled to begin Wednesday.

Whether he was framed or not, the random murders stopped.  So either he really is the guilty party or the guilty party just stopped to make it look even more like this guy is guilty.  I'm just glad the murders stopped.  It was WAY too close to home for me...

Death to all murderers!Viva la innocente!

What the fuck is with all the comments likening any criminals with dark features as Obama look alikes? If its just one troll or a group of ppl posting this shit,then you are proving everyone right when you say Arizona is full of ignorant racist fucks?

This case fucking upset me. If he would have had a better lawyer this case would have been beat. THERE IS NO EVIDENCE TIED TO THIS CASE. He was cleary pinned. No one know anything about the case except that he"s the killer but no one does the research. Everybody want to believe the police and the media but use a little common sense. Every time a question was asked during the trail there was no valid answers. I'm sure there were paid jurors. I don't believe this will be the end of this case. I for sure know there will be NO death penalty.

Just a single look at that goofy, obama like, ape looking face and everyone sees a killer, rapist, sodomizer (like Cliton), thief, arsonist, pedophile, and demonrat baby killer. He's is going down. Straight to hell.
