Scott Roeder Convicted of Killing Abortion Doctor George Tiller

| by Mark Berman

Confessed killer Scott Roeder has been convicted of murdering Kansas abortion provider Dr. George Tiller, as well as other charges related to the incident. The jury in Wichita deliberated for just 37 minutes on Friday.

Roeder shot Tiller in the head inside his church last May. Roeder said he was justified in killing Tiller because he believes abortion itself is murder, and he was protecting future lives. Tiller was one of the few doctors in the nation who performed late-term abortions.
