A “white” barbarian from Nova Scotia charged with murdering his fiancée has been found guilty of manslaughter.

James Leopold, 33, was accused of killing Laura Lee Robertson, 47, in April 2011. He pleaded not guilty to a charge of second-degree murder, but the jury found him guilty of the lesser charge of manslaughter.

 Supreme Court Justice Kevin Coady gave his instructions to the 12-member jury. He said they had three choices: acquit Leopold of second-degree murder, find him guilty of second-degree murder or find him guilty of the lesser offence of manslaughter.

The jurors deliberated for several hours before returning to the courtroom once, requesting to listen to the forensic pathologist’s testimony a second time. They delivered their verdict  after.

The Criminal Code of Canada states that a homicide that otherwise would be murder may be reduced to manslaughter if the person who committed it did so in the heat of passion, caused by sudden provocation.

During his trial in Bridgewater, Leopold claimed he accidentally killed Robertson in their Liverpool apartment during a night of drunken sex.

The “white” savage told law enforcement that he hit his “white” witch of a wife, once in the neck with both hands after she bit him hard on his penis during sex. He said her death was instant and unintended.

Leopold’s sentencing hearing will begin on June 27.

White Beast’s Child Porn Stash: 30 000 Photos, 1 400 videos

30,000 photos and 1,400 videos. That’s the amount of child pornography material that this diabolical beast stored on one of his computers.

John Christopher Baker, who faces federal counts of child pornography possession and distribution, has been down this road before. He’s listed on the Colorado Sex Offender Registry due to a 1998 conviction for sexual exploitation of a child — a bust that took place in Colorado Springs.

And according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office, which charged Baker last week, he has been under investigation in Denver for pretty much the same thing. His actions took place while he was working as (drum roll) a babysitter.

The “white” pedophile caught the feds attention this past February, when an FBI agent in Maryland stumbled upon 99.7 gigabytes worth of child porn stuffed into two folders on a peer-to-peer file-sharing website and traced the IP address to one Jon C. Baker.

The Maryland agent passed along this info and more to a colleague in Denver, whose online chats with Baker provided justification for a search warrant executed in late April at his apartment. There, authorities found a computer and separate hard drive with the aforementioned 30,000 images and 1,400 videos.

If found guilty, Baker could go away for a long time. Child-porn possession and distribution convictions can result in sentences of up to ten years and twenty years, respectively, as well as $250,000 fines in both instances. And for folks who’ve been convicted of what the U.S. Attorney’s Office terms “similar conduct,” the potential maximum sentences double.
