Jury Returns For Accused Killer

A jury in Cherokee County took less than an hour Monday to return a guilty verdict against accused killer Richard Cobb.

The conviction means Cobb could be put to death.

The jury believed Cobb was responsible for the September 2002 robbery of a Rusk convenience store, where three people were kidnapped and shot. One of those victims died.

The two that survived testified at trial.

Accused accomplice Beunka Adams also faces capital murder charges. His trial is pending.
