    The jury determining the penalty in the Kaboni Savage case has voted unanimously that convicted drug kingpin will be sentenced to death, reports the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

    Savage, 38, was found guilty earlier this month of all 17 charges against him, including racketeering, arson, and murder. In 2004, Savage ordered that a North Philadelphia rowhouse be set to the torch. The attack killed four children and two adults.
