Two white supremacists plead guilty to beating death in Phoenix

Two men with ties to the neo-Nazi organization National Alliance pleaded guilty on April 17 to beating a man to death in 2002.

Samuel Compton, 31, and Christopher Whitley, 29, each pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and will be sentenced to no less than 20 years in prison.  Sentencing is scheduled for May 25 in Maricopa County Superior Court. A third man, Justin LaRue, 29, was sentenced to 16 years in prison for his role in the murder.

The three men kicked and beat to death a 20-year-old man outside of a pool hall in north Phoenix in October 2002.
