SEPTEMBER 15, 2023 - Jury recommends the death penalty for Michael Hunt
“We, the jury, find by a vote of 10 to 2 that Michael Harrison Hunt, 58, Black, should be sentenced to death.”
10 of the 12 jurors said they believe Michael Hunt should die for shooting and killing 19-year-old Alexandra “Lexie” Peck.
They also convicted Hunt of 3 counts of attempted first-degree murder for shooting 3 other people at the home, including Peck’s father, Danny Scoggins. Prosecutors say Hunt wanted to kill people who could testify against him after he was arrested in September 2018 on sex trafficking charges and for sexual abuse of a minor. Hunt shot the 4 victims on the night of April 4, 2019, at their home. Court records show Hunt pretended to be a pizza delivery driver in order to get into the home.
The judge set a hearing for November 7th to formalize the sentence.
