RENO, Nev. (AP) - Two 31-year-old men await sentencing Nov. 17
after being convicted in a race-related attack that killed a woman
in a Reno-area home.
The Reno Gazette-Journal reports a Washoe District Court jury on
Tuesday convicted Ronald Hulsey and Jeremy Turner in the August
2010 beating death of 57-year-old Carolyn Faircloth in Sun Valley.
Investigators say Faircloth, who is white, tried to intervene when the two men attacked and injured her son, Carl Roberts, who is black.
They say Turner punched Faircloth, and Hulsey kicked her in the head.
Prosecutors say Turner was incensed in part because Fairchild had fathered a child with a black man.
Turner told sheriff's detectives that he hates blacks and his
main target was Roberts.
Faircloth died at the scene of brain and spine injuries.
