Capital Murder Trial Verdict

Guilty, that's the verdict a Jackson County jury gave late last night in the capital murder trial of Christopher Davis.

Davis was convicted for the murder of Jackson County Sheriff Deputy Bruce Evans. Evans died while standing next to his patrol car, waiting to assist in a high speed chase in July of 2000.

Davis was the driver of the truck that crashed into him. Bruce Evans' family and friends cried tears of joy after getting the news that the man responsible for their loved one's death will spend the rest of his life in jail.
