June 07, 2008|Nardine Saad

A self-proclaimed white supremacist and his friend have been sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole for murdering a 7-Eleven clerk.

Travis Justin Frazier, 25, of Tustin and his friend William Fox, 24, of Irvine entered an Irvine 7-Eleven dressed in black and wearing masks about 2:30 a.m. March 2, 2004. Frazier hit Shuresh Dass seven times over the head with a heavy metal flashlight, and Fox stabbed Dass in the heart with a large hunting knife.

The two friends fled the store when they realized Dass was dead.

A store surveillance camera captured the murder.

Robbery, not hate, was the motive behind the crime, authorities said.
