On Friday, a jury deliberated for two hours before deciding that Duncan should be eligible for the death penalty.
     
In December, Duncan pleaded guilty to 10 charges related to the 2005 kidnapping and torture of two north Idaho children and the murder of one of them at a remote Montana campsite.
     
The next step for prosecutors is to build a case for execution by showing a range of aggravating factors they say make the death penalty the appropriate punishment.
     
Duncan can then make his case for life in prison without parole.
