Posted Feb. 26, 2008 – Tears streaming down her face, the mother of an ex-Ohio police officer who murdered his pregnant girlfriend begged a jury Monday to spare her son’s life.

"I don't know what I would do without him," Renee Jones said of her son, Bobby Cutts Jr., the 30-year-old former Canton patrolman who was convicted on Feb. 15 for killing Jessie Marie Davis, 26, and their unborn daughter, Chloe.
"He was my firstborn, my only son. He means so much to me. He used to call me three, four times a day."
The jury, composed of six men and six women – all White – can sentence Cutts, an African American, to death, life in prison (with the possibility of parole after 20, 25 or 30 years in prison) or life in prison without the possibility of parole.
During this penalty phase of the trial, the jury also heard from Cutts' sister, father and one of his school teachers. Jones said her son was a good young man who was active in sports, the Boy Scouts and church.
"I never had any trouble out of him."
