Agreed. The judge accepted the jury's recommendation, but the formal sentencing will take place later. He also still faces federal hate crime charges.

I would add: aside from my general objections to the death penalty, I'm glad he didn't get it in this case as it might have made him a martyr to his Nazi fans. Plus which, his name would resurface in the news periodically for years or decades to come as appeals worked their way through the system. Now he's more likely to simply fade into obscurity, which I think is better.
