Roeder found guilty of first degree murder in Tiller trial
The jury in the Wichita, Kansas, trial of Scott Roeder has found him guilty of first-degree pre-meditated murder. The anti-abortion activist who shot Dr. George Tiller in the head last year, killing him in a church lobby, was also convicted of assault and will very likely end his days in prison. Ron Sylvester of the Wichita Eagle is tweeting events from the courthouse. Video of the verdict available here.
The Eagle’s video of the deputy D.A.’s closing argument is powerful as well. The jury agreed wholeheartedly with her arguments.
