Convicted of Killing Ex-girlfriend With Sword

MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) - A Cobb County jury has convicted a 31-year-old man of stabbing his ex-girlfriend in the heart with a sword.

The jury found Eliot Jeffers of Kennesaw guilty of murder on Thursday. He faces a mandatory life in prison at a sentencing hearing Dec. 19.

Jeffers confronted Jocilyn Williams inside a restaurant on Oct. 30, 2006, stabbing her twice with a 3-foot-long sword.

The jury rejected an insanity defense, deliberating about three hours before returning a verdict in the nine-day trial.
