JACKSON, Miss. – A federal jury Thursday convicted reputed Ku Klux Klansman James Ford Seale of kidnapping and conspiracy in the 1964 deaths of two black teenagers in southwest Mississippi.
Seale, 71, had pleaded not guilty to charges related to the deaths of Charles Eddie Moore and Henry Hezekiah Dee. Federal prosecutors indicted Seale in January almost 43 years after the slayings.
