It is the crime that led to a crackdown on sex offenders around the country.
Today, a Florida jury convicted a sex offender of raping and killing a 9-year-old girl.
Jurors convicted john Couey in the slaying of Jessica Lunford.
Lunford was snatched from her bedroom in 2005 and eventually buried alive.
Her body was found in a shallow hole, encased in two black plastic trash bags clutching a purple stuffed dolphin.
The jury must now decide whether to recommend whether Couey be sentenced to death.
