A conviction for the man on trial for the beating death of gay student Matthew Shepard.
A jury found Aaron McKinney guilty in the brutal beating-
McKinney's attorneys said Shepard made an unwanted sexual advance at their client.
Prosecutors say McKinney and a friend lured 21 year old Shepard form a Laramie bar, drove him to a remote spot, pistol whipped him into a coma and left him tied to a fence.
Shepard died in the hospital five days later.
McKinney could get the death penalty. The penalty phase of the trial begins tomorrow.
His accomplice pleaded guilty in April and is serving two life sentences.
A 33-year old man is behind bars tonight for allegedly beating two sisters to death and then setting their Galax home on fire.
The bodies of 89-year old Ila (eye-luh) Edwards and her 85-year old sister (Eye-nez) Inez were discovered last night.
Police found the two after a neighbor called to report that their house was on fire.
John D- Cochran was arrested today and charged with capital murder.
He's being held without bond.
The sisters were well known in the community.
We'll have more tonight at 6.
A combination of luck and being prepared prevented fire from consuming another historic building along Lynchburg's riverfront.
A passerby spotted smoke last night coming from the 145- year old J-W Wood warehouse, which is being renovated into a children's museum.
Firefighters quickly controlled the blaze and officials say the building's new sprinkler system also prevented a major catastrophe.

Sheriff's deputies say a 16-year-old and a 17-year-old were caught in the act last night outside Magna Vista High School.

Authorities in the District of Columbia are looking for an Abraham Lincoln look alike.
But this guy is anything but "Honest Abe." The suspect may be responsible for as many as 10 commercial robberies in the Washington-Baltimore area since July.
In the crimes, he is dressed in a top hat, a false beard and wire rimmed sunglasses.
Last month, the man struck in Rockville, Maryland with an accomplice also dressed like Lincoln.

Lewis-Gale Medical Center is the first hospital in Virginia to get new Cat Scan technology that allows patients to be examined in record time.
It looks just like the traditional Cat scan, but the Lightspeed CT scanner works an average of six times faster.
