Adams guilty on one count in beating death

A San Francisco jury on Thursday, May 10 found Kyle Brandon Adams guilty of felony assault in the beating death of gay man Chad Ferreira. Adams, 25, who is also gay, showed no emotion when the verdict was read, according to Bay Area Reporter reporter Ed Walsh, who was in the courtroom when the verdict was announced.

The 11-man, one-woman jury is still deliberating on other charges Adams faces, including manslaughter in connection with Ferreira’s death and assault on Ferreira’s friend, Angel Zepeda. The jury will reconvene Friday.

[Updated 5/12/07: The jury adjourned Friday without reaching verdicts on the remaining charges. The jury will resume deliberations Monday.]

Ferreira, 27, was beaten in an incident that took place on January 30, 2006 at about 2 a.m. in front of the Rolo store on Market Street near Castro.

This week’s B.A.R. has an article about Adams’s court testimony that was presented Monday.
