A man from South Carolina is convicted of murdering his five children in 2014 and his father asks jurors to give him life without the possibility of parole.

Timothy Jones's father took off his tie and shirt to show jurors on Monday the facial tattoos of his five grandchildren killed on the back at the request of defense lawyers.

Jones Sr. testified that he had demolished the pool he had built for his grandchildren in his garden because the memories were too painful.

The same jury that sentenced Timothy Jones Jr. for five counts last week decides between the death penalty and life without parole.
