Convicted Killer Apologizes

A man convicted of murdering a Marine and his lifelong friend outside a North Carolina State University football game apologized to his victims' families and his own. Timothy Wayne Johnson also spoke yesterday to the jury considering whether he should be sentenced to die. The 23-year-old was convicted Thursday of first-degree murder in the death of Kevin McCann and the second-degree murder of Camp Lejeune Second Lieutenant Brett Harman. Timothy Johnson admitted shooting the men, but testified during his trial that he did it to scare them away from fighting with his brother, Tony Johnson. A parade of McCann's and Harman's relatives testified yesterday as the sentencing phase of Timothy Johnson's trial began. They praised the 23-year-old victims and described the pain of their loss. Johnson could be sentenced to death or life in prison without parole because he has been convicted of a prior violent felony. Jurors will consider a sentence next week.
