Former Texas A&M WR found guilty of killing a jogger with a machete

Former Texas A&M wide receiver Thomas Johnson was convicted of murder.

A Dallas County jury found former Texas A&M wide receiver Thomas Johnson guilty in the killing of David Stevens after the former wide receiver’s legal defense declined to call a single witness. The former D1 wideout was accused of hacking a Dallas jogger to death with a machete in 2015 has been convicted of murder

Johnson was accused of waiting on a trail in East Dallas four years ago and attacking the 53-year-old mechanical engineer as he ran by. Prosecutors have said the 25-year-old Johnson confessed to the seemingly random killing and that DNA evidence also pointed to his guilt.

Thomas Johnson was an Under Armor All-American coming out of high school. This is a wild story.
