Tuesday an Iowa teen is expected to learn his fate for killing his grandparents.

Nineteen-year-old Isaiah Sweet pleaded guilty to killing Rick and Janet Sweet in their Manchester home in May of 2012. He was seventeen at the time of the crime.

Several people took the stand at a hearing last month, including a psychologist. He suggested Sweet was both psychologically and socially immature at the time of the murders.

Several family members also spoke asking that sweet be given the maximum sentence.

The judge delayed his sentencing decision so he could consider all the statements.
