Emrys John could receive the death penalty at Friday's hearing. Kevin Cox is facing life in prison without parole.

They're among three ex-Marines who were convicted of invading the French Valley home of Sgt. Jan Pietrzak in 2008. Prosecutors say they tied up and robbed the 24-year-old sergeant and sexually assaulted his new bride, 26-year-old Quiana Jenkins-Pietrzak, before shooting them in the head.

A third defendant, Tyrone Miller, previously was sentenced to death, and a fourth awaits trial.

All had worked with the sergeant at the Camp Pendleton Marine base.
