Brunswick County Man Found Guilty of Murder

JUNE 28, 2006 -- Thomas Duncan, 65, was found guilty of first-degree murder Wednesday.

A jury in Brunswick County convicted Duncan of shooting and killing his daughter-in-law Johnetta Duncan following an argument last summer.

Duncan was expected to take the stand Wednesday, but instead the defense did not call a single witness.

Thomas Duncan was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

The death penalty was not an option in this case.
