(Reuters) – A homeless street preacher was found guilty on Friday of kidnapping teenager Elizabeth Smart, whose abduction from her bed in the middle of the night and harrowing, nine-month ordeal gripped much of America more than eight years ago. A federal court jury in Salt Lake City convicted Brian David Mitchell, 57, on two counts: kidnapping and unlawful transportation of minor across state lines to engage in sexual activity.

The self-styled prophet, who had been ejected from court daily for disrupting the trial, loudly sang the hymn, “He Died, the Great Redeemer Died” in the packed courtroom as the verdicts were read. Smart, now a young woman of 23 who testified in graphic detail about her abduction at knife-point, rape and captivity, exchanged smiles with her mother, Lois, in the front row of the courtroom gallery.
