Jury orders death penalty for woman convicted of killing family
Manling Tsang Williams, 31, was convicted of killing her 27-year-old husband and two sons, who were 3 and 7.
Husband Neal Williams, was slain with a sword, and children Devon Williams and Ian Williams were smothered with a pillow while they lay in their bunk beds, prosecutors said.
Manling Williams called authorities to report that she had found the bodies after she returned home from shopping.
The jury deliberated for five days before voting for the death penalty, the Los Angeles County district attorney's office said.
Williams is scheduled to be sentenced Sept. 23.
