It took the jury of 8 women and 4 men about two hours to convict Shawn Tyson of murder in the first degree of James Kouzaris and James Cooper.
The 17-year-old, wearing a shirt and tie, sat emotionless as the verdict was read to the court, as did his mother Kenyatta Whitfield, in the public gallery.
Shawn Tyson was found guilty of murdering British tourists James Kouzaris and James Cooper in Sarasota.
Any murder is brutal. These murders seem especially so. So needless, so random, such a waste.
Jury in the trial of the man accused of killing two British tourists has heard how he feared bullets found by police may incriminate him
