A Louisiana-based Airman has been convicted in the killing his roommate.
Airman 1st Class Isaiah Edwards was recently found guilty of stabbing Airman First Class Bradley Hale to death in March of 2018, at an Andersen Air Force Base living quarters in Guam.
The two men were assigned to the 2nd Aircraft Maintenance Squadron as Electronic Warfare Journeymen.
Despite claiming the stabbing was in self-defense, Edwards was charged with unpremeditated murder, with Hale’s family hugging and crying as the verdict was read after around 11 collective hours of deliberation.
The sentence phase began on Thursday afternoon, according to the Shreveport Times, and Hale’s family delivered victim impact statements.
Hale’s mother, Charla Hale, said she effectively went into shock after hearing of her son’s brutal demise.
“He was my best friend and my heart,” she said. “I felt like it was just ripped from me.”
Court is expected to resume Friday.
