TULSA, Okla. (AP) - A jury has convicted two Tulsa men of
second-degree murder in the July 2008 slaying of a man shot in the
head while driving.
Roy C. Williams, 18, and Marco L. Carroll, 20, were tried on
charges of first-degree murder, but jurors acquitted them of that
charge and convicted them on the lesser charge. They were accused
of killing Brian Minter, 35, whose pickup truck struck a house
after he was shot.
Carroll received a 20-year sentence and was fined $5,000, while
Williams received a 12-year term and was fined $5,000.
The jury also convicted both men of two counts each of using a
vehicle to facilitate the discharge of a weapon. Carroll received
sentences of five and six years for those crimes; Williams received
two three-year terms.
