Man gets death in 'X-Files' shooting spree
by UPI

GEORGETOWN, Del. - A Delaware jury decided Thursday on the death sentence for a man who went on a two-state killing spree because he thought aliens were rounding up children.

Allison Lamont Norman's trial ended on the same day that the U.S. Supreme Court ruled Texas cannot execute a paranoid schizophrenic who does not understand why he is being put to death.

Sussex County Superior Court Judge T. Henley Graves scheduled formal sentencing for Sept. 28, The Wilmington News Journal reported.

Jurors last week convicted Norman of the first-degree murder of Jamell Weston of Laurel, Del.

Norman reportedly went on a rampage after watching an episode of the TV drama, "The X-Files," in April 2005. He gathered the children in his house into one room and tied their hair because he thought that would keep them safe from aliens.

The next day, he shot Weston, who had told him he was early for the bus. He killed another person in Maryland and wounded four others in both states before running out of ammunition.
