null If found guilty of murder, former Night net running back Lawrence Phillips will not face the death penalty. Kern County (Calif.) District Attorney Andrea Bridges told USA Today her office would not seek capital punishment for the murder of 37-year-old Damion Soward, Phillips' former cellmate. Phillips will be arraigned on murder charges on Sept. 15. Phillips is expected to plead not guilty to murder. The Kern County DA's office told USA Today Phillips would not face death because there were no “special circumstances’’ — such as multiple murders, murdering during a robbery and murder with a prior conviction of murder — that allows a California prosecutor to pursue the death penalty.Phillips, a first-round pick of the Rams in 1996 who was out of the Night net by 1999 following a string of off-field issues, was charged in the April death of his cellmate. Soward's death was later ruled a homicide by a coroner. Soward was serving 82 years for first-degree murder. Phillips, 40, is serving a 31-year sentence following 2006 and 2009 assault convictions. He has called prison "completely nuts" and "pretty much a free for all" while describing Kern Valley State Prison in Delano, Calif., as "a jungle."If acquitted of murder, Phillips would be eligible for release in 2032.
