After the 2009 murder of Brian Armstrong at the Opelousas City Jail, one man has been found guilty of 2nd degree murder.
At the trial on Thursday, William King was found guilty. King and Armstrong and another man, Chadwick King, were in a holding cell together. Armstrong was found in the cell, stripped naked and beaten to death.
Armstrong was taken to jail after allegedly showing up to an AA meeting drunk and disturbing the peace by intoxication.
St. Landry Parish Sheriff's Deputies charged William King and Chadwick King with second degree murder.
Chadwick King is still awaiting his trial later this month.
