• Man convicted of girlfriend's 2012 murder in North Versailles parking lot

    Updated:

    PITTSBURGH - A western Pennsylvania man has been convicted of first-degree murder in the shooting death of his girlfriend a year and a half ago.

       Jurors in Allegheny County deliberated for about eight hours over two days before convicting 21-year-old Dorian Williams on Thursday. He faces a mandatory life term without possibility of parole when he is sentenced in April.

       Prosecutors said Williams killed 24-year-old Susan Hammond following an August 2012 argument in the parking lot of the North Versailles (Vehr-SAYLES') Castles apartment complex. Her body was found the following morning.

       Defense attorney Kirsha Weyandt argued that no physical evidence linked her client to the crime.

       The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette says that as Williams was led away by sheriff's deputies, he said quietly to relatives, "I'll be all right. Love you, too."
