Ex-NASA exec found guilty of murder

A former NASA executive was found guilty of first-degree murder in the shooting of his next-door neighbor by a Virginia jury, according to reports.

Prosecutors argued that Michael Hetle, 54, also a former cop, was driven to murder after the homeowners association didn’t act on his complaints of noise, drinking, and other annoyances from his neighbor, Javon Prather, 24, according to The Washington Post.
