Adams To Die By Lethal Injection

After more than 12 hours of deliberation, an Anderson County jury sentenced a Rusk man to die by lethal injection. 21-year-old Beunka Adams received the death penalty for a 2002 robbery that led to murder. Adams and another man held up a Rusk convenience store, kidnapped three people inside and shot all of them. One of the victims died. Adams' attorney says he and his client are disappointed with the sentence and says there will be an automatic appeal.
