DECATUR, Ala. (WHNT) – A Decatur judge has approved the jury recommended death penalty for the man convicted of the 2011 Decatur Krystal murders.
Jordaan Creque was sentenced at 1:30 p.m. in Morgan County, according to our news partners The Huntsville Times/Al.com.
Morgan County Circuit Judge Glenn Thompson handled the sentencing. A Morgan County jury recommended the death penalty for Creque in October.
Creque, 23, is the first of three people to stand trial for the August 2011 robbery and murders of two Krystal employees in Decatur. Jesse Aguilar, 23, and Jeffrey Graff, 49, were shot to death. Their bodies were discovered in the walk-in cooler.
Ezekiel Gholston and Cassandra Eldred are also charged with capital murder in this case. Their trial dates have not yet been scheduled.
Eldred and Creque were both employees of the Krystal restaurant at the time the crime was committed.
