Skylar Deleon Gets Death Penalty In California Yacht Murders

A judge has sentenced a man to death for murdering an Arizona couple by tying them to an anchor and throwing them overboard from their yacht off Southern California.

Orange County Superior Court Judge Frank F. Fasel (FASS' ehl) on Friday imposed the sentence recommended by the jury that convicted 29-year old Skylar Deleon of killing Tom and Jackie Hawks of Prescott, Ariz.

Prosecutors say the Long Beach man feigned interest in buying the couple's yacht and killed them during a test cruise in 2004.

Three others have also been convicted of related charges.

DeLeon was also convicted in the 2003 killing of Jon Jarvi, an Anaheim man he met on a work furlough program.
