Dr. Tiller's assassin convicted of first-degree murder

After arguing that he was trying to save lives by killing a doctor who performed abortions, Scott Roeder has been convicted of first-degree murder in Kansas.
Roeder testified that he shot Tiller in the head May 31 in the foyer of Tiller's church in Wichita because he believed Tiller posed an "immediate danger" to unborn children.
