A Liberian jury unanimously convicted Benjamin Molley Morris, 32, of murdering the wife of a Southern Baptist missionary from North Carolina and her 10-year-old daughter, the state news agency Lina said. Morris was convicted of killing Elizabeth Senter, 46, and her daughter, Janet Rachel Senter, on Nov. 25 in a remote Liberian town 200 miles northeast of the capital city of Monrovia. Circuit Court Judge Timothy Swope said he will pass sentence Monday. Under Liberian law, Morris could be ordered hanged, but the verdict and sentence are subject to appeal.
