IVERNESS, Fla.---A Florida judge has decided John Couey is eligible for the death penalty.
Couey was convicted of kidnapping and raping nine-year-old Jessica Lunsford. He was caught in Augusta.
His attorneys argued for life because they said Couey has a low IQ.
The judge disagreed, and he'll decide soon if Couey will be put to death.
