BRIDGEPORT - The daughter of two Fairfield jewelers murdered in a 2005 robbery took the stand today as jurors decide whether their killer, Christopher DiMeo, should receive life in prison or the death penalty for their murders.

Tara Donnelly spent only five minutes on the stand, after the judge limited her testimony following a motion from the defense. DiMeo?s attorneys argued her testimony could unfairly prejudice the jury in its final decision.

The same jury convicted DiMeo on four separate counts for shooting and killing Tim and Kim Donnelly during a robbery at their Fairfield jewelry store in Feb. 2005.
