LUMBERTON, NORTH CAROLINA: After less than a day of deliberations, a jury convicted Daniel Green of the 1993 killing of James Jordan, the father of Chicago Bulls basketball star Michael Jordan. Green's defense was based on the testimony of four witnesses who said he was watching television when Jordan was killed. But District Attorney Johnson Britt pointed out that all four were family friends and came forward only after the trial began. For jurors, the decision may have been aided by a video Green made of himself wearing Jordan's watch and jewelry. Both Green and his accomplice, Larry Demery, who pled guilty to involvement in the killing, could get the death penalty.
