FAYETTEVILLE – The sentencing phase of the Mario McNeill murder trial will begin Tuesday.

A jury on Thursday found McNeill guilty of first-degree murder in the 2009 death of 5-year-old Shaniya Davis. He was declared not guilty of rape of a child.

The trial lasted several weeks, however the defense did not present a case and McNeill refused to testify on his own behalf.

McNeill could be sentenced to death.
