The man convicted of kidnapping and killing a 19-year-old Seminole County woman told a jury Tuesday he wants the death penalty.
William Davis was found guilty of kidnapping Fabiana Malave in October 2009. He then took her to his home in Orange County, where he raped and murdered the teen.
Now, the same jury that found Davis guilty must decide if he should face the death penalty.

On Day 2 of the penalty phase, Davis told the jury "if you give me life, you are making a mistake." Earlier in the morning, the convicted killer's family pleaded for his life.
Tuesday morning's testimony gave an in-depth look into Davis' childhood. Family members said he had a troubled youth full of lying and vandalism.
Davis' stepmother said his father was abusive and a manic depressant.
But the real problems, according to Davis' family, came once he was discharged from the military, and his behavior turned criminal.
The jury also heard from a doctor who diagnosed Davis as bipolar, but he also said that Davis was not insane at the time of the murder.
Closing arguments will take place at 9 a.m. Wednesday. The case will then be turned over to the jury.
