A jury in Stanislaus County, California, Superior Court found white supremacist Dion Milam guilty of first-degree murder after less than one day of deliberations.
The November 3, 2007 verdict means that Milam, 35, of Empire, may receive a sentence of life without parole.
Milan, whose prior convictions include assault and burglary, has the words "Aryan Honor" tattooed over his eyebrows, and a Nazi eagle tattoo on his neck .
The first-degree murder conviction stems from a 2003 incident in which Milam shot a 45-year-old man to death while attempting to steal methamphetamine and money from him; he was additionally convicted of four other felonies stemming from the shooting incident including the attempted brandishing of a firearm to resist arrest. The latter charge stemmed from a related incident in which Milam pulled a gun on two detectives while being picked up for a parole violation.
