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.
