Ex-KKK Man Jailed for 1964 Deaths
A former Ku Klux Klansman has been jailed for life over the abduction and killing of two black teenagers in the US state of Mississippi. James Ford Seale, age 72, was given three life terms on charges of kidnapping and conspiracy over the deaths of Charles Eddie Moore and Henry Hezekiah Dee. Seale, a former policeman, has appealed against the conviction. The case was reopened in 2005 after Moore's brother found Seale was still alive. Seale was rearrested in January. Seale was first arrested in 1964 but authorities freed him, citing lack of evidence.
