David Mark Hill read the following one-page statement to jurors before they began deliberations:

"I was asked if I would like to make a statement to the jury during the penalty phase of this trial and I said I would.

"I would like to start by expressing my deep regret for what I did and take this opportunity to tell the people I hurt especially the victims' families and to tell them I'm truly sorry. I was at a point in my life when things around me got so bad I just snapped and I know I should have never done what I did.

"I would also like them to forgive me. I was not aware how much damage I caused until I heard some of the witnesses testimony here and I was moved and saddened by it even if though I can't show it on my face because of the brain damage I did to myself.

"You have heard from the doctors that I don't show emotions outwardly anymore and I wanted to make sure everyone knows I am truly saddened for the pain I have caused everyone, especially the victims' families.

"Thank you.''
