Latest: Former Mighty Morphin Power Ranger Skylar Deleon will face a death sentence if the members of a jury in a triple murder case get their way.

Last month, Deleon, a former child actor who appeared on the popular kids' TV series, was convicted of murdering three people, including a couple who were tied to an anchor and thrown from their yacht.

And now the jury in the case want the 29-year-old actor to pay for his crimes with his life.

Deleon's attorney, Gary Pohlson, argues his client should not be put to death.

He says, "Skylar is guilty of all three murders, (but) at the end of this, I'm going to ask you to give him life without the possibility of parole as the appropriate sentence."

The lawyer cited Deleon's "horrible, horrible life," and noted he was allegedly abused as child by his father, who eventually died of AIDS.

Deleon will learn of his sentence next Wednesday.
