KNOXVILLE (WATE) - A Knoxville man was convicted Thursday of murdering his mother over 27 years ago.
Billy Ray Hill was convicted on second degree murder charges.
He was arrested in April 2012 and charged with beating and stabbing Bobbie Lou Hill to death. Her body was found in September 1986 at her home in West Knoxville's Cumberland Estates.
Her only son, Billy, was 19 at the time of the murder. Police said the case went cold until they received a tip in 2012 that led to the arrest.
Sentencing has been set for May 9.
