The teenage football player accused of killing his cheerleader girlfriend was found guilty in a Tennessee court this week. Former Division III college football player William Riley Gaul was convicted of first-degree murder after he shot his then-16-year-old girlfriend, Emma Walker, to death in November 2016 while she was in bed in her Knoxville home. Gaul, 19, immediately was given a mandatory sentence of life in prison without possibility of parole for 51 years, after the verdict came down.
