PHILADELPHIA — John "Jordan" Lewis, the baby-faced North Philadelphia man whose string of six armed robberies ended with the Halloween 2007 slaying of Police Officer Chuck Cassidy, was found guilty of first-degree murder yesterday by a Philadelphia jury.
The 12 jurors deliberated about 21/4 hours before returning their decision shortly after 4 p.m. The forewoman - the first juror selected Nov. 4 - announced the verdict in a loud, strong voice without hesitation.
