Johnathan Doody Faces Life in Prison For Killing 9 People In the Arizona Temple Slayings

Johnathan Doody was only 17 when he participated in the Arizona temple slayings of 9 people, including six monks at a Buddhist temple Wat Promkunaram, in Phoenix, Arizona.

Doody and Allesandro Garcia, who participated in the robbery and killing of the monks, the two teenagers at the time had originally planned a burglary to steal about $2,600 cash and valuables from the monks.

Garcia claimed during the previous three trials that the robbery was Doody’s idea and after the robbery Garcia said, he tried to persuade Doody not to kill the victims, but Doody was determined to leave behind no witnesses.

Police found the stolen items from the temple at Garcia’s house, where Doody was staying at the time.

Doody’s brother and mother were members of the temple, but neither were there the night of the shootings.

Johnathan Doody was convicted after his third trial in the 1991 killings of nine people. He was found guilty in 1993 and sentenced to 281 years in prison. But an appeals court threw out his conviction in 2011 after ruling that investigators improperly obtained his confession.

The second trial resulted in a mistrial in October after jurors failed to reach a verdict. His third trial ended with a conviction in January on nine counts of first-degree murder and 11 armed robbery and burglary charges.

Sentencing is set to take place on Friday morning and Doody faces multiple life sentences.

Defense attorneys for Doody have argued Garcia was lying, only to implicate Doody and to avoid a death sentence, pointing out for jurors how he initially implicated four other men from Tucson who were later found to have had nothing to do with the crime.

During the first trial Doody confessed to being outside the temple during the shootings, but he claims that he never went inside. Prosecutors said both men were equally culpable and that Garcia had no reason to fabricate his story.

Doody has maintained his innocence in the Arizona temple slayings throughout the trials.
