A motivational speaker has been found guilty over the deaths of three people who fell ill during a meeting at an Arizona “sweat lodge”.
A jury found James Ray guilty of three counts of “negligent homicide”.
The deaths occurred at the Angel Valley Retreat Center, 115 miles (180km) north of Phoenix, in October 2009.
Ray’s lawyers said the deaths were a tragic accident, but prosecutors said he had failed to act when people exhibited signs of distress.
