PENSACOLA, Fla. - Three appellate judges will determine the fate of Florida man who was convicted in the shooting deaths of two British tourists who were vacationing in Sarasota.
A jury in 2012 convicted Tyson in the deaths of James Cooper and James Kouzaris. Tyson, who was 16 at the time of the killings, was sentenced to two consecutive life terms. He remains in the Sarasota County Jail and was not in court Wednesday.
The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in 2012 that a juvenile can't be legally given a mandatory life sentence.
