Jurors consider death penalty in 1990 'Baby Lollipops' case
Miami-Dade jurors could decide Thursday whether to recommend the death penalty for Ana Maria Cardona, the mother convicted of starving, beating and torturing her toddler son in 1990.

Lawyers are set to deliver closing arguments in the penalty portion of Cardona's trial.

The same jury earlier convicted Cardona of first-degree murder and aggravated child abuse for the slaying of her son, Lazaro ``Baby Lollipops'' Figueroa, whose emaciated and beaten body was discovered in Miami Beach in 1990.

Cardona was convicted and sentenced to death in 1992, but the Florida Supreme Court later overturned the conviction.

The jury will recommend a death sentence or a life prison term. Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Reemberto Diaz will ultimately sentence Cardona.
