Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery reiterated that there is no criminal charge for a hate crime in Arizona.

Montgomery said in a first-degree murder case, the only options for sentencing with a conviction are life without the chance of parole and the death penalty.

Montgomery said race could be used to help inform the jury why the state is pursing a certain charge and sentence.
