DALLAS - A Dallas County jury convicted a Dallas man of murdering an Iraqi immigrant who had gone outside to admire the snow.
Nykerion Nealon, 18, shot and killed Ahmed Al-Jumaili last year outside his northeast Dallas apartment complex.
The victim was a refugee who had only been in the US for about 3 weeks before he was murdered. The gunman was a known gang member who is not eligible for the death penalty because he was a teen when he committed the crime. The good news is that he is probably going to get 99 years, which means he will most likely die in prison before he is eligible for parole.
The irony here is that a man managed to escape from a place worse than Dodge City, and died in what was supposed to be a much safer place. Life can be weird like that.
