WACO, Texas — A central Texas jury has sentenced a man to life imprisonment for the 2007 murder of an animal control officer.

A McLennan County jury in Waco deliberated for a half-hour Monday before returning the maximum punishment for 33-year-old Jerry Mack Newland of Elm Mott. The jury had deliberated about two hours earlier in the day before finding Newland guilty in the June 2007 shooting of 47-year-old Bellmead animal control officer Bobby Dean Evans.

A prosecution witness had been jailed with Newland after the shooting. The Waco Tribune-Herald reports he testified that Newland had bragged of shooting Evans multiple times, then rolling him over and shooting him in the chest “just to watch him die.”

According to trial testimony, Newland was a member of the white supremacist prison gang Aryan Brotherhood of Texas.

Newland’s attorney, Walter Reaves, says he’ll appeal the conviction.

    A racist coward. Need I say more ?? Too bad he didn't qualify for the death penalty; certainly, the conditions for aggravated circumstances were there.

    I'm very disapointed. I think this dirt bag should have gotten the death penalty. Adding insult to injury, this bag of shi_ was bragging about it. They should BBQ him extra crispy.
