2 teens convicted of murder in death of 'goth' woman in Britain

A British jury has convicted two teens of murdering a woman because she dressed like a goth. Sixteen-year-old Ryan Herbert and 15-year-old Brendan Harris beat 20-year-old Sophie Lancaster to death as she tried to protect her boyfriend. Both were kicked and stamped into unconsciousness by a gang in a park last August. Lancaster died two weeks later. Her 21-year-old art-student boyfriend Robert Maltby survived the assault. A jury at Preston Crown Court has been told the pair were singled out because of how they dressed. Preston is about 220 miles (355 kilometers) northwest of London.
