Share/Save/Bookmark

MANSFIELD, Louisiana — Convicted child killer Brian Horn will be formally sentenced to death at 9 a.m. May 28.

District Judge Robert Burgess set the date Wednesday. It falls a few days after the 45-day window he initially envisioned Saturday after a jury sentenced the 37-year-old Horn to death.

The Times reports (http://bit.ly/1epRkNY ) Burgess said he's required by the Louisiana Supreme Court to prepare a uniform capital sentence report. It likely will be dozens of pages in length to give a comprehensive overview of Horn and his trial.

Horn, of Keachi was convicted April 2 of first-degree murder in the March 30, 2010, death of 12-year-old Justin M. Bloxom, of Stonewall. The twice-convicted sex offender used text messages, portraying himself as a teenage girl, to lure Bloxom away from a friend's home.
