New Mexico man convicted of beating deaths of 2 transients


ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A jury on Wednesday convicted a 20-year-old of beating two homeless Navajo men to death with cinder blocks and other objects as they slept, an attack that spurred officials in New Mexico's largest city to establish a task force on Native American homelessness.

After a full day of deliberations, jurors found Alex Rios guilty of two counts of second-degree murder after hearing details about the violent attack on Allison Gorman, 44, and Kee Thompson, 46, in a vacant lot in Albuquerque in July 2014.
