In 2012, man found lying in pool of blood with bound hands and feet in cell at Santa Rosa Correctional Institution.

MILTON — A state prisoner with a history of attacking other inmates faces a possible death sentence for fatally beating his cellmate.

Santa Rosa County jurors found 37-year-old Shawn Rogers guilty Tuesday of first-degree murder and kidnapping, according to the State Attorney's Office. Jurors next will decide if Rogers deserves the death penalty or life in prison. Execution requires a unanimous vote.

Authorities say Ricky D. Martin was found lying in a pool of blood with bound hands and feet in his cell at Santa Rosa Correctional Institution in March 2012. He was taken to a Pensacola hospital, where he died a week later.

Rogers is already serving a life sentence for armed robbery and battery convictions in Volusia County. Officials say Rogers has a history of violence, including multiple assaults on inmates.
