A federal jury convicted Diamond Levi Britt of first degree murder this past week.
Britt, 24, was charged with the death of his father, Gary Britt in a savage sword attack at a home on New Lake Road.diamond britt
According to investigators, Britt slashed his father several times with a sword, nearly severing an arm from the elder Britt.
Following the attack, the 24-year-old was found walking along New Lake Road with that sword and was taken into custody.
His father was taken to a Tulsa hospital for treatment of the wounds where he later died.
Because he was a member of a federally-recognized tribe, Britt was charged in federal court.
No date was given for sentencing in that case.
