Man convicted in 1983 rape-murder in Louisville

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A Louisville man could receive the death penalty after he was convicted of raping and killing a woman in 1983.

A Louisville newspaper reports that a jury found Larry Lamont White guilty Friday in the death of Pamela Armstrong, a 22-year-old mother of five who was raped and shot twice in the head on June 4, 1983.

The jury will return to court Monday to decide whether White should receive the death penalty.

White was convicted in 1985 of killing 22-year-old Deborah Miles and 21-year-old Yolanda Sweeney, who were killed just blocks from the location where Armstrong's body was discovered. White was sentenced to death, but the Kentucky Supreme Court overturned his conviction.

White later pleaded guilty to the murders and accepted a sentence of 28 years in prison.
