AUSTIN -- A deadly high speed crash resulted in a murder conviction.
An Austin jury took less than 30 minutes Wednesday to find 38-year-old Reynaldo Hernandez Jr. guilty of the murder of James Williford.
The incident took place last June when Hernandez Jr. stole a silver pickup from the parking lot at Barton Creek Square Mall. He then sped away, ran a red light and slammed into a car as police followed him. The impact killed Williford.
The sentencing phase for Hernandez Jr. begins Thursday morning.
