Man accused of killing three convicted in third murder.

 

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) – An East Baton Rouge Parish jury has convicted an alleged serial killer of second-degree murder.

The Advocate reports that (http://bit.ly/nHoBVp) 45-year-old Jeffery Lee Guillory was convicted Sunday night of killing 46-year-old Renee Newman in 2002.

The charge carries an automatic sentence of life in prison.

Guillory was arrested in December 2009 and booked with Newman’s death and those of Sylvia Cobb in 2001 and Florida Edwards in 1999.

Both were 36 and from Baton Rouge.

He is already serving 50 years for second-degree robbery and attempted second-degree murder of a woman in Lafayette in late 2007.

Prosecutor Dana Cummings said that Guillory’s DNA was found on Newman’s shirt, and that the shirt was used to strangle her.

Her body was found behind an old department store building.
