The jury had been told they could consider a manslaughter charge for Kenny Adams as a lesser charge to murder if they so decided.
Their options were between guilty of murder, 10 years to life, guilty of manslaughter, 2 to 20 years, or not guilty. The judge told the jury the difference between murder and manslaughter is intent.
Jurors ultimately found there to be enough evidence beyond a reasonable doubt that Adams intentionally killed his cousin.
Kenny Adams of Limestone County was charged with murder for stabbing Yancy Foster in the chest with a pocketknife on Dec. 31, 2012. Limestone County District Attorney Brian Jones said Adams went to Foster's mobile home to get two DVDs of the "Fast and Furious" movie series that he had loaned to his cousin.
Adams was out on bond while awaiting trial; his bond has now been revoked until sentencing, which will be held at a later date.
