NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A Nashville jury convicted Jerome Barrett of 2 counts of second-degree murder in the 1975 strangulation death of Girl Scout Marcia Trimble.
The 9-year-old disappeared while delivering Girl Scout cookies in her upscale Nashville neighborhood.
The 62-year-old Barrett became a suspect in the case 1 1/2 years ago through DNA testing.
He is currently serving a life sentence for the 1975 rape and murder of a Vanderbilt University coed. He faces 44 years in prison on each count in this case.
The case is regarded as the most notorious in Nashville history because of the circumstances of the girl's death and the length of the investigation.
