The capital sentencing phase began today in the case of Earl Bramblett.
(----------------)
VO-NAT
SUPER=03-Salem/File Tape; :00


Both sides put on evidence about Bramblett's past- the prosecution going back to the mid-70s.
The defense called witnesses to describe his childhood.
Earl Bramblett was the youngest of five children, in a Texas family... so poor the family of seven lived in a two -room house.
He managed to get an athletic scholarship to attend college, but never graduated.
(----------------)

Bramblett apparently got his peculiar paranoia from his mother- -who like her son became an alcoholic.
The prosecution presented women who said Bramblett had molested them when they were in the early teens.
One said he put a gun to her head and threatened to kill her if she cooperated with authorities.
The sentencing hearing resumes Wednesday.
