Dallas Man Convicted of Killing 2 Over Dog Waste

DALLAS (AP) - A Dallas jury has found a 76-year-old man guilty of capital murder for the shooting deaths of two neighbors in a dispute over dog waste.

Chung Kim was convicted Thursday and faces an automatic sentence of life in prison for the killings of Michelle Jackson and boyfriend Jamie Stafford.

Prosecutors say Kim shot Jackson as she stood on her apartment balcony in February. He then went upstairs to her apartment and shot and killed Stafford.

Kim has said the couple's dog would use the balcony as a bathroom and when the neighbors washed it, the urine and feces would stream down to his balcony.

He's insisted the shooting of Stafford was in self-defense. He's also said he doesn't remember shooting Jackson but he could have suffered a blackout.
