TAMPA (FOX 13) -

A sentencing hearing is set for Ralph Wright, the former MacDill Air Force sergeant convicted this week of killing a woman and their young son.

After two days of deliberations, a jury found him guilty. Prosecutors had argued that Wright broke into Paula O'Conner's home and strangler her, and then smothered little Alijah in his crib.

At the time, O'Conner had been trying to get Wright to pay child support.

He could face the death penalty.
