Man convicted of killing estranged wife

TOWSON, Md. (AP) — A Baltimore County Circuit Court jury has convicted a man of fatally stabbing his estranged wife and another man.

Forty-six-year-old Bryant Walls of Joppa was convicted Wednesday of two counts of first-degree premeditated murder in the deaths of 42-year-old Okemia Walls and 50-year-old William Cunningham.

Prosecutors say on Dec. 2, 2012, Bryant Walls kicked in the door to a home in Parkville. Authorities say he stabbed Cunningham 17 times, chased Okemia Walls out of the house and stabbed her 25 times.

Walls faces a maximum sentence of life without the possibility of parole. A sentencing date has not been set.
