A 24-year-old man who once reportedly said he killed two Compton police officers when "they slipped up" during a routine traffic stop in 1993 was convicted Wednesday on two counts of first-degree murder. Regis Deon Thomas faces the possibility of the death penalty for the murders of Officer Kevin Michael Burrell and Reserve Officer James Wayne MacDonald after a jury decided he was guilty of multiple murders and using a gun in the commission of a crime.
