A Harrison County jury sentenced Abdur Rahim Ambrose, 30, to death Friday after he was found guilty of beating and stabbing a man to death in the Delisle community in April 2013. Judge Robert Clark read the jury’s verdict to a crowded courtroom around 2 p.m.
District Attorney Joel Smith said testimony shows Ambrose and two other men beat and stabbed Robert Trosclair, 31, for nearly two hours before dumping his body near Cunningham Road in Pass Christian. Trosclair died in a Mobile, AL, hospital three days later.
An autopsy revealed Trosclair died from blunt force trauma to the head, three stab wounds in his side and strangulation.
“Robert was found face down in a roadside ditch, covered in blood and dirt, with his hands and waist tied with a ratchet strap,” said Assistant District Attorney Crosby Parker.
One of the co-defendants in the case, 21-year-old Orlander Patrick Dedeaux III, pleaded guilty to a second degree murder charge in January. He was sentenced to 30 year in prison.
The other co-defendant, Stevie Ambrose, is still behind bars waiting for his own capital murder trial to begin. Stevie and Abdur are brothers.
“The Harrison County Sheriff’s Department did a tremendous job investigating this case and pursuing the evidence to make this day possible. This has been a tough case and a difficult week for the Trosclair family,” Smith said. “The jury’s verdict provides them justice as they continue to mourn the loss of their loved one.
