Jury Deliberates Less Than Two Hours In Murder Trial

A Groveton man has been found guilty of manslaughter.

A Trinity County jury reached its verdict Wednesday in the Bezaaley Jackson trial.

A judge sentenced Jackson to 20 years in prison.

Jackson reportedly shot and killed 45-year-old Johnny Scurlock of Pennington during an argument back in February.

The jury deliberated for an hour and a half. The trial lasted less than two days.
