Guilty Verdict

A jury in Choctaw County, Alabama has found John Steele guilty of murder.

The Texas native was the prime suspect in the stabbing death of William Ashton III.

The incident happened in March 2011 at Steele's home.

Investigators say it resulted from an argument between the two men.

Steele could be sentenced to life in prison. He's scheduled to be sentenced June 6 in Choctaw County Circuit Court.

    I believe the person that was killed was my neighbor's son. As you see I said I believe it was him, due to the fact that he hardly ever say him. And when we did see him never not once was he rude or anything very polite. I hate that this happened. But beer never mixes well with others

    This is a horrible situation for both families involved. Praying for them all.
