White supremacist pleads guilty to killing black man with a sword

A white supremacist pleads guilty to killing a black man with a sword, as part of an attack that authorities said was intended to incite a race war in the United States.

James Jackson admits to fatally stabbing 66-year-old Timothy Caughman in March 2017, after stalking a number of black men in New York City.

Jackson, who is white, told police he traveled from Baltimore to carry out the attack because New York is the media capital of the world. He said the slaying had been practice for further assaults on black people.

Jackson, 30, faces life in prison when he is sentenced February 13 after pleading guilty to six counts, including murder and a hate crime charge.
