Blinks lead to murder conviction in Ohio

CINCINNATI — An Ohio man was found guilty Thursday of fatally shooting a man who authorities say identified his assailant by blinking his eyes while paralyzed and hooked up to a ventilator.

A Hamilton County jury convicted Ricardo Woods, 35, of murder and felonious assault in the death of David Chandler, who was shot Oct. 28, 2010, as he sat in a car in Cincinnati. Police videotaped an interview with Chandler, 35, after he was shot. He was only able to communicate with his eyes and died weeks later.

Defense attorney Kory Jackson said Thursday that there would be an appeal.
