Weed might not be a gateway to harder drugs, but it is a gateway to niggers.
And that’s much, much worse.
It took a jury in Lycoming County part of the day and into the evening Friday to find a man guilty of murder in the first and second degree in a fatal shooting in a Poplar Street residence.
Jordan Adonis Rawls, 27, formerly of the 1000 block of Race Street, was found guilty of shooting Shane Wright, 25, and his mother, Kristine Kibler, 50, on Halloween night 2016.
Jurors returned the verdict of first degree murder, and second degree murder of Wright and Kibler; guilty of robbery, conspiracy to commit robbery, attempted robbery, and possessing an instrument of crime.
President Judge Nancy L. Butts convicted Rawls of person not to possess or carry a firearm.
The third degree murder charge of Kibler was “not guilty.”
The first degree murder carries a life sentence and the second degree murder brings life without possibility of parole, said First County Assistant District Attorney Martin Wade.
It was a robbery of the half of a double in which Wright operated a marijuana distribution, Wade said in closing remarks.
