White Supremacist Found Guilty Janet Heimlich reports that a second white supremacist was convicted in the dragging death of James Byrd Junior, a 49 year old black man. Yesterday a jury found Lawrence Russell Brewer guilty. He faces a sentence of life in prison or death. Today the same jury will hear additional testimony before deciding if Brewer will join his former prison partner, John William King, on death row. King was convicted and condemned in February.
