A jury reached its decision in the penalty phase of the federal murder trial of Angela Johnson in Sioux City.A jury in Sioux City says Angela Johnson should be put to death for her role in the drug-related slayings of five people in 1993. The 41-year-old Johnson was convicted last month in federal court of 10 counts of aiding and abetting her boyfriend Dustin Honken in the execution-style slayings. Prosecutors argued for the death penalty, saying because of the role Johnson played in the planning of the murders, the killing of innocent victims, and her lack of remorse, she should be put to death. Prosecutors say she conspired with Honken to kill former-drug-dealers-turned-informants Terry DeGeus and Greg Nicholson. Also killed were Nicholson’s girlfriend Lorie Duncan and her two daughters. Their bodies were found in 2000, buried in two shallow graves in fields near Mason City.
