The Act provides for the imposition of a sentence of life imprisonment without parole on a defendant convicted of murder where the fact-finder (judge or jury) has found one or more statutory aggravating circumstances. Imprisonment for life without parole means that the defendant shall be incarcerated for what remains of his natural life without eligibility of parole.
