BRUNSWICK - It took a Glynn County Superior Court jury less than three hours to convict Harold Kinlaw of kidnapping his former wife and murdering her friend, a U.S. Customs and Enforcement agent.

The seven-day trial ended Monday night with the jury convicting Kinlaw of murder with malice, kidnapping, aggravated stalking, aggravated assault and possession of a firearm in the commission of a crime.

The jury rejected the defense's claim that Kinlaw shot and killed Felipe Herrera in self-defense on Jan. 18, 2004.

Prosecutors said Kinlaw had bought a gun, taken target practice, hid under a table at a garage sale for six hours to slay Herrera and kidnap his former wife, Damaris Kinlaw.
