White supremacist gets life for killing black man with sword

World News | Published:

James Jackson said the killing was intended to be practice for further assaults on black people.

A white supremacist who killed a black man with a sword as part of an attack that authorities said was intended to incite a race war has been sentenced to life in prison without parole.

James Jackson admitted to fatally stabbing 66-year-old Timothy Caughman in March 2017 after stalking a number of black men in New York City.

Jackson, who is white, told police he travelled from Baltimore to carry out the attack because New York is the media capital of the world.

Mr Caughman, who was remembered as a gentleman and a good neighbour, was attacked while collecting bottles for recycling.
