Fla. trainer faces death in couple's murder

A jury has recommended the death penalty for a personal trainer convicted in the 2006 murder of his clients, a southwest Florida couple.

Authorities say Richard Robards, a former bodybuilder, killed Frank and Linda Deluca because he wanted to steal their safe, which contained about $80,000. He was never able to open the safe.

The jury voted Tuesday, but a judge will ultimately decide whether 42-year-old Robards is sentenced to death or life in prison.
