TOKYO -- Nineteen-year-old American musician Richard Hinds is now convicted of murdering an Irish exchange student in Tokyo.
Hinds, who is from Memphis, didn't speak as a court found him guilty of strangling 21-year-old Nicola Furlong at a Tokyo hotel.
Authorities accused Hinds and another American, James Blackston of taking Furlong and one of her friends to a hotel after they had passed out in a bar.
The court ruled that Hinds strangled furlong when she regained consciousness to keep her quiet.
The presiding judge called it a "vicious attack."
