Tuesday, June 21, 2005Ex-Klansman found guilty of manslaughter in ’64 slayings
PHILADELPHIA, Miss. - An 80-year-old former Ku Klux Klansman was convicted of manslaughter Tuesday in the 1964 slayings of three civil rights workers — exactly 41 years after they disappeared.
The jury of nine whites and three blacks reached the verdict in the case that was dramatized in the movie "Mississippi Burning" on their second day of deliberations, rejecting murder charges against Edgar Ray Killen but also turning aside defense claims that he wasn’t involved at all.
Prosecutors had sought murder charges, but included the manslaughter charges just before the trial began.
Killen could get up to 20 years on each of the three counts of manslaughter.
