Baton Rouge news, Louisiana news.

A Louisiana jury has convicted a tattoo faced man of double-homicide as his defense team argued whether or not the jurors judged him on his looks.

William Bottoms Jr., 29-year-old, was facing two counts of second-degree murder in connection with the slayings of two men in 2017. The victims were found shot in the head in the back seat of a vehicle.

Earlier this week, when the jury was being selected, Bottoms' defense attorney Jarvis Antwine told the jurors that they were asked not to be influenced by his facial tattoos.

Megan Gaylord, Bottoms' girlfriend said that he shot the men while they were using drugs and he became paranoid. He was sentenced to two consecutive life terms.
