Fayetteville, NC-- Wednesday, a Cumberland County jury sentenced Mario Andrette McNeill to death for the November 2009 death of 5-year-old Shaniya Davis.

According to WRAL-TV, who has been covering the trial, the eight-man, four-woman jury convicted McNeill, 32, last week of First-Degree Murder, First-Degree Kidnapping, Sexual Offense of a Child, Indecent Liberties with a Child, Human Trafficking and Sexual Servitude in connection with the girl's death.

Although the deliberation for the conviction took almost eight hours over two days, jurors needed less than 40 minutes to decide McNeill's sentence.
