Last Updated: 40 days ago
NEW ALBANY, Ind. - It took a jury less than 20 minutes to find a southern Indiana man guilty of murder in in the slaying of his late mother's best friend.
The Courier-Journal of Louisville, Ky., reports William Clyde Gibson was found guilty Friday of murder in the death of 75-year-old Christine Whitis. Prosecutors say he lured her to his New Albany home to perform "a perverse sexual fantasy."
Gibson could face the death penalty. The sentencing phase of the trial is scheduled to begin Monday morning.
He's also accused of killing two other women over a decade. Gibson will be tried separately in those two killings.
