Watch live from the courtroom as the sentencing trial for Parkland school shooter Nikolas Cruz begins more than four years after the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

A jury of seven men and five women are deciding whether Cruz should get the death penalty for killing 17 people in the 2018 shooting at Stoneman Douglas.

Opening statements and witness testimony began July 18 for the death penalty trial, which could take four months or possibly longer.

Cruz, now 23, pleaded guilty in October to 17 counts of first-degree murder and 17 counts of attempted murder in the shooting.

The jury will be deciding whether he is executed or receives a sentence of life without parole. For Cruz to get the death penalty, the jury must be unanimous.

NBC 6 will be streaming the Parkland school shooter sentencing in this article whenever court is in progress.
