Sanders found guilty in retrial

Quinton Sanders was found guilty as charged Friday morning in a Memphis criminal court for the first degree murder of Memphis Police Officer Don Overton.

This was the second trial for Sanders, who was accused of killing Overton after striking his car during a high speed chase in 1999.  The first trial, held in 2001, ended in a murder conviction.  That conviction was later overturned by a court of appeals.

The jury deliberated for 90 minutes.  Sanders was sentenced to life in prison.
