ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The sentencing trial is underway for a south Georgia mass murderer who pleaded guilty to killing six men in Tifton in 2005. 

It will be up to Tift County Superior Court Judge Gary McCorvey to decide whether Jamie Underwood will be sentenced to death for the crimes. Underwood has already been sentenced to 120 years in prison for three counts of armed robbery connected to the killings.

Underwood is one of four people charged with four home invasion murders in Tift and Colquitt Counties in one night. Six Hispanic men were killed and six others injured in the robberies.
