Death Penalty In Producer Slaying

A man convicted in a 2008 Dallas robbery that left two Christian record producers dead received the death penalty Aug. 21.

James Broadnax was convicted of capital murder in the fatal shooting of Stephen Swan. Also killed was Zion Gate Records owner Matthew Butler. Broadnax still faces a capital murder charge for Butler’s death.

Both were gunned down after leaving the recording studio in June 2008.

A second man, Broadnax’s cousin, is also charged in the killings, and was with Broadnax when police arrested him. He has not been tried yet.
