As the James McVay death penalty hearing continues, the deputy warden for the state penitentiary took the stand and expressed concerns about McVay, should he get a life sentence.
A jury has decided admitted killer McVay qualifies for the death penalty.
McVay killed 75-year-old Maybelle Schein in the summer of 2011, stole her car and claimed to be heading to Washington to kill the president.
The deputy warden says McVay threatened penitentiary staff when he was in custody following the murder. He told the jury McVay said, "You are lucky I'm in restraints. I'm waiting for one of you to screw up, then one of you will be gone."
Schein's brother and a friend, who said she was like a sister, took the stand to talk about Schein as a person. They both said she was a compassionate woman who loved taking care of others, traveling and her two dogs.
