DALLAS (AP) Jurors will begin deliberating whether a North Texas man should die for drowning his two young sons.

Closing arguments are scheduled for Thursday on whether Naim Rasool Muhammad should receive the death penalty or a sentence of life imprisonment without parole.

Muhammad had insisted on testifying in his own defense, defense attorney Paul Johnson persuaded him not to.

The Dallas County jury has found Muhammad guilty of capital murder in the drowning of 5-year-old Naim and 3-year-old Elijah in a creek in August 2011. Muhammad told police he was mad at the children's mother for breaking up with him.
