Second man convicted in death of FSU student
It took a little more than an hour for a St. Johns County jury Thursday to pronounce a guilty verdict on Kentrell Feronti Johnson’s role in the murder of Florida state graduate Vincent Binder, 29.
Johnson, one of three men charged in the 2010 crime that began with a Louisiana jail break, was convicted of murder and first degree kidnapping.
As it is a death penalty, the jury will meet again to vote on whether the 43-year-old deserves death or life in prison. Judge Raul Zambrano will make the final decision based on the jury’s recommendation.
Binder, hacked and stabbed, was found in an open field near Interstate 95 and Florida 16.
Co-defendant Quentin Truehill has already been found guilty and sentenced to death.
