Jurors have reached a verdict in the trial of a man accused of killing an abortion provider.
It took the jury just 37 minutes Friday to reach the verdict in confessed killer Scott Roeder's trial. It was to be read shortly.
Roeder has said he shot Dr. George Tiller on May 31 to protect unborn children.
His lawyers on Thursday failed to make a case for a lesser charge of voluntary manslaughter. The judge also refused to allow the jury to consider a second-degree murder conviction.
If convicted of first-degree murder, the 51-year-old faces a mandatory sentence of life imprisonment with the possibility of parole after 25 years.
