2 men found guilty in UK black teen's murder

Mail.com: "January 04, 2012 — LONDON (AP) — In a case that exposed racism and incompetence in Scotland Yard and took nearly two decades to bring anyone to justice, a jury found two men guilty of brutally stabbing a black teenager to death.

Gary Dobson, 36, and David Norris, 35, were convicted Tuesday of killing 18-year-old Stephen Lawrence as he waited for a night bus in southeast London in 1993. The pair will be sentenced Wednesday and face life in prison."
