British man found guilty of murdering couple

LOS ANGELES -- A Los Angeles jury has convicted a British man who was charged with stabbing a woman to death and decapitating her boyfriend at a condominium in 2001.

Neil Revill, a small-time drug dealer, was found guilty Tuesday of one count of first-degree murder in the death of Kimberly Crayton and one count of second-degree murder in the slaying of Arthur Davodian, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Revill was also convicted of two counts of transporting controlled substances.

During the six-week trial, jurors heard from a jailhouse informant who testified that Revill confessed to what appeared to be a drug-fueled paranoid slaughter.

According to the informant, Revill, who was high on methamphetamines, suspected Davodian was trying to keep him in the home while Israeli-organized crime figures were coming to kill him.

Revill, who is scheduled to be sentenced April 22, faces life in prison without the possibility of parole.
