RENO — Two 31-year-old men await sentencing Nov. 17 after being convicted in a race-related attack that killed a woman in a Reno-area home.
A Washoe District Court jury last week convicted Ronald Hulsey and Jeremy Turner in the August 2010 beating death of 57-year-old Carolyn Faircloth in Sun Valley, according to the Reno Gazette-Journal.
Investigators said Faircloth, who is white, tried to intervene when the two men attacked and injured her son, Carl Roberts, who is black.
They said Turner punched Faircloth, and Hulsey kicked her in the head.
Prosecutors said Turner was incensed in part because Faircloth had a child with a black man.
Turner told detectives that he hates blacks and his main target was Roberts.
