On May 31, Scott Roeder walked into a church where Dr. Tiller was attending services with his family. In front of the entire congregation, he shot Tiller in the forehead at point-blank range.
Yesterday, Roeder was convicted.
“The jury deliberated for just 37 minutes before finding Scott Roeder, 51, of Kansas City, Mo., guilty of premeditated, first-degree murder for putting a gun to the forehead of Dr. George Tiller on May 31 and pulling the trigger.”
Roader faces life in prison, with the possibility for parole in 25 years—unless the prosecutor can push for 50. I wish her luck.
