DALLAS (AP) - A jury has taken less than 10 minutes to convict a North Texas man of capital murder in the drowning of two of his sons. Naim Rasool Muhammad was convicted Wednesday of killing 5-year-old Naim and 3-year-old Elijah on August 22, 2011. Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty.
He confessed to police that he took his children to a Dallas-area creek and told them to pretend they were swimming before he held their faces under the water. He told a detective he drowned the boys because he was mad at their mother for breaking up with him.
