GONZALES - Jurors found a Carville man guilty of kidnapping, rape and murder for the 1990 killing of an Ascension Parish woman.

Tolbert Morris, 56, was accused of abducting 18-year-old Tammy Bowers and raping her before killing her.

The jury returned guilty verdicts for the charges of second-degree murder, aggravated rape and second-degree kidnapping.

Prosecutors earlier decided they would not seek the death penalty against Morris.

News 2's Rob Krieger will have reaction from the courthouse in Gonzales tonight at 6.
