James Brock sentenced to life in prison for double murders

By Web Staff –  email

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – James Brock, the man accused of the shooting deaths of 21 year olds Tyesha McNair and Terrence Clark in October 2009, has been found guilty of murder.

At the beginning of his trial last week, Brock requested a bench trial, meaning no jury would be present during witness testimony or revealing of evidence, the judge would make the decision on his own.

Judge Bobby Peters agreed to that request and after five days of this murder trial, a verdict was read Monday afternoon.

James Brock has been found guilty of two counts of murder, two counts of felony murder, four counts of aggravated assault, possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and theft by receiving stolen property.

He will spend two consecutive life sentences in prison for his crimes.

News Leader 9 will have live reports starting on Five with more on this guilty verdict.
