Jackson, Miss. (AP) A Colorado Springs man is finally able to deliver a message to his brother.

After 43 years, Thomas Moore says he's going to the cemetery where his brother is buried, and tell him that he's fulfilled a promise to see justice served.

A jury in Jackson, Mississippi convicted reputed Klansman James Ford Seale Thursday on federal kidnapping and conspiracy charges, in connection with the 1964 killings of Moore's brother and another man.

A witness testified that Charles Eddie Moore and Henry Hezekiah Dee were forced into the trunk of Seale's Volkswagen and driven to a farm. They were later tied up and attached to heavy weights before being dumped alive into the Mississippi River.

Thomas Moore was instrumental in getting authorities to reopen the case.
