Killer gets another life sentence

April 23, 2003

Camilla- A South Georgia man is convicted of murder again, and gets another life sentence. Thirty-one-year-old Willie Fred Bell was sentenced in Mitchell County Superior Court Wednesday for the 2001 stabbing death of 79-year-old James Crosson.

The jury deliberated for three hours before returning the guilty verdict. Bell was also convicted of armed robbery and burglary. The life sentence will run consecutively with the life sentence he received last year for the stabbing death of Arthur J. Brown, Junior.

Evidence from the Brown case was used in this trial , because the pattern of stab wounds was so similar in each killing.
