A Maryland man was found guilty of first-degree murder on Wednesday for the 2017 stabbing death of Army 2nd Lt. Richard Collins III.
Throughout the case, prosecutors had argued that Urbanski, who is white, was racially motivated in the killing of Collins, who is Black. However, earlier this week a judge tossed out a separate hate-crime charge against Urbanski.
Urbanski is now scheduled to be sentenced next April, and faces up to life in prison with no chance of parole.
“It’s been a long road, but we are very pleased with the results,” Collins’ father said at a news conference following the jury’s verdict.
