You can't judge a book by, errr

William Bottoms Jr., 30, of Greenwell Springs, was found guilty of second-degree murder in the June 2017 shooting deaths of Dedrick Dewayne Williams, 23, and Mohamed Sead Hussain, 29. The paranoid Bottoms was on Meth and without warning or provocation shot Williams and Hussain as the two men sat in the back seat of a car. The two life terms run consecutively.

Bottoms' twin brother, Lawrence Bottoms, was fatally shot in Mississippi after he pulled a gun on Hancock County sheriff's deputies. Lawrence Bottoms was convicted in 2017 of the stabbing death of a teenager with a screwdriver.
