Virginia Man Has Courtroom Outburst During Murder Conviction

Posted: Updated:

RICHMOND, Va. (AP)- A Virginia man had to be temporarily removed from a courtroom when he cursed at a prosecutor and spoke over the judge during proceedings in which he was found guilty in a fatal shooting.

Twenty-five-year-old Akeem Darnado Young was convicted Wednesday on first-degree murder. Young interrupted remarks by a Henrico prosecutor saying "I didn't do this," and "this ain't no trial" after the judge warned about the disruption.

He's accused of killing 20-year-old Andrew Duncan during an argument Sept. 23 near Richmond Raceway.

Jurors recommended Young serve 30 years in prison for the slaying, and also a 3-year sentence for an additional felony firearm charge. He'll be formally sentenced Nov. 29.

Young's attorney Stephen Mutnick argued of the dozens of exhibits prosecutors presented, each had its limitations.
