Juror says lack of remorse brought down death sentence

JACKSON, Tenn. (AP) - A juror in the trial of David Lynn Jordan says Jordan got the death penalty because he failed to show remorse for the murder of his wife and two others.

The jury in Jackson convicted Jordan in a January shooting spree at a state Transportation Department garage. He has been sentenced to die by lethal injection.

Jordan's spiritual adviser says the man was remorseful during private conversations. Juror Robert Patterson said yesterday that other factors also weighed against Jordan.

For instance, testimony said Jordan purposely killed his estranged wife Donna Renee Jordan with her brother's gun on her father's birthday.
