Godin found guilty in shooting death of librarian

The 12 jurors in the first-degree murder trial of a former district librarian returned a verdict of guilty about 3:20 p.m. today.

After deliberating only 3 1/2 hours, the jury returned the verdict on the third day of the trial.

The defendant, Alan Godin, showed no reaction at the verdict, but his attorney John Convery and Northeast Lakeview College Librarian Robert Vaughn, the victim's best friend at work, lowered their heads.
Godin was arrested at the scene of the shooting, the library of Northeast Lakeview, Oct. 13, 2008, after witnesses watched him fire repeatedly at close range at Librarian Donald "Devin" Zimmerman.

Jury says librarian wasn't insane in campus shooting

Excerpt: Jurors rejected an insanity defense Tuesday from former Northeast Lakeview College librarian Alan Godin, who walked into the school's library two years ago and methodically gunned down a colleague.
It took the group about 3 ½ hours to find Godin, 64, guilty of murder for the slaying of Devin Zimmerman, 37, with whom he had engaged in a workplace spat days earlier.

Maybe the 64 year old wanted to retire. Maybe Government officials had spent his retirement funds to balance-the-budget so he would recieve none of the money he was promissed (and worked for for years) so he shot the other librarian to insure he would be fed IN JAIL for the next 30 years.
