Ex-Cop Hears Verdict, Drinks Poison
Kelless Twohearts Lory   (DeKalb County Police)

A retired cop in Georgia tried to end his life as soon as he discovered that he was likely to spend the rest of it in prison for molesting a young girl. Kelless Twohearts Lory, 58, drank what authorities say was a poisonous liquid from a vitamin bottle when a jury foreman announced that he had been found guilty on charges that included aggravated child molestation, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

His victim, a family member who was 9 years old when the abuse began in 2011, testified at the trial, reports the New York Daily News. Lory was hospitalized and will be sentenced at a later date. He faces two life sentences plus 40 years. (This sex offender in Missouri ate cyanide when he was found guilty.)
