Teen faces life sentence in slaying of UK tourists
Friends of 2 U.K. tourists slain in Fla. speak out after teen convicted of their slayings
By The Associated Press

SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) ' In a case that generated blaring tabloid headlines in the U.K. press, a Florida teen is facing life in prison without parole for murdering two young British tourists who got lost and wandered into a housing project where their convicted killer lived.

After an eight-day trial, a jury on Wednesday convicted 17-year-old Shawn Tyson of two counts of first-degree murder in the shooting of 25-year-old James Cooper and 24-year-old James Kouzaris last April.

The two men were on a three-week Sarasota holiday and spent an evening drinking when they got lost.



Both were considered fun-loving world travelers by those who knew them.
