Stanley Vernon Majors (KTUL)

The jury has ruled Stanley Majors guilty of murder in the first and threatening an act of violence and intimidation and guilty of possession of a firearm after felony conviction. The jurors recommend life in prison without the possibility of parole.

Deliberations began Wednesday afternoon for Majors, who was accused of a hate crime and murder for the death of his south Tulsa neighbor.

Majors was charged with first-degree murder in the shooting death of Khalid Jabara in August 2016. Defense attorneys have argued that Majors is mentally insane, but prosecutors say Majors hated Jabara and his family due to their Lebanese background.

Majors had been accused of making hateful comments and threats toward the family in the past.
