Strangling Suspect Convicted For 1968 Death 4-29-2011

A jury has found a 67-year-old serial strangling suspect guilty of first-degree murder in the 1968 killing of a Michigan woman.
An Oakland County Circuit Court jury reached the verdict Thursday against Nolan R. George of Hamilton, Ohio, for killing 36-year-old Gwendolyn Perry, of Pontiac.
Authorities said George strangled women with their undergarments.
The prosecution said George plotted the crime and enjoyed watching his victims die.
Defense lawyer Michael McCarthy said George blacked out after drinking several beers and didn't premeditate the killing.
George was freed in 1982 after 12 years in prison for killing 22-year-old Frances Brown of Lake Orion.
He also served time in Ohio for strangling a woman and is suspected in other attacks.
George faces automatic life imprisonment without parole when he's sentenced May 19.
