(July 6, 2023) - Brian Horn sentenced to death
Jury recommends death for man found guilty of murdering 12-year-old
A DeSoto Parish jury recommended death during the penalty phase of sentencing in the capital murder trial of Brian Horn for the murder of 12-year-old Justin Bloxom of Stonewall. The murder happened on March 30, 2010.
Horn was convicted of murder and sentenced to death in 2014, but that verdict was overturned by the State Supreme Court on a technicality involving some of the things Horn's attorney said during that trial. In this latest trial the 12 member jury was chosen in Vernon Parish because of pretrial publicity in northwest Louisiana. The jury was transported to DeSoto Parish where the trial was held.
Horn will return to court on September 14 for the judge to hand down formal sentencing.
