Jury Delivers Justice to David Nam
January 29, 2010 – a Philadelphia jury found David Nam guilty of 2nd degree murder regarding the death of Anthony Schroeder in August 1996.
It may have been delayed, but justice was served today.
The Philadelphia Common Pleas Court jury deliberated about three hours after hearing closing arguments this morning from the prosecution and defense attorneys.
A conviction of second-degree murder carries a mandatory sentence of life in prison without chance of parole.
Nam, 32, was extradited in 2008 from South Korea – where he fled in March 1998 after being released on $1 million bail – to face trial in the Aug. 16, 1996 shooting of Anthony Schroeder, 77, during a botched home invasion at Schroeder’s house at Fourth Street and Olney Avenue
