Slayer Murder Conviction
(Blabbermouth) The Los Angeles Times is reporting that a 26-year-old man who wore a SLAYER shirt when he killed four members of a south Whittier, CA family was found guilty Tuesday of murder after forensic evidence tied him to the crime scene.

According to the paper, SLAYER is a heavy metal band "known for lyrics about violence and death." Nearly a decade ago, three San Luis Obispo youths pleaded guilty to killing a 15-year-old girl, saying SLAYER's songs incited them to commit the crime. The girl's parents sued the band, but a judge threw out the lawsuit in 2001, ruling that the band's music is protected by the 1st Amendment.[see full story for more] - Click here for the Full Story
