TULSA, Okla. -- Just eight months, 67-year-old Stanley Majors was found guilty on all charges for killing his neighbor, after years of harassment and intimidation towards the Lebanese family next door. Wednesday, he was found dead in a state penitentiary.

“We really are making a conscious effort not to think of him," Khalid Jabara's sister said.

The house that used to belong to Stanley Majors now looks abandoned.

“You get mad all over again," Jabara said.

Just two years ago, a tragedy occurred just steps away from his house.

“We knew something like this would happen," Jabara said. "There were too many red flags that led up to this.”

Majors spent years in conflict with the Jabara family. At times he referred to his neighbors as “filthy Lebanese” or “dirty Arabs.”

Three years ago, Victoria Jabara, says Majors ran over her mother with his car.

“She’s not made a full recovery," she said.

Then,  in August of 2016, Majors went to his neighbors' house and shot and killed Khalid Jabara on his front porch. On Wednesday, Majors died in the infirmary unit at the state penitentiary.

“We’re relieved but it comes with so many other emotions as well," Jabara said.

The family has had tried to forget Majors, instead, they have decided to focus their energy on remembering Khalid like by promoting Marsy’s Law.

“Any time that there is an update with the perpetrators status we would get notified and it’s a constitutional right for the victims to be notified," Jabara said.

Plus, bond reform and social justice story hour at B’nai Emunah preschool.

“If he were here and it happened to someone else, I mean would be standing with us too. he would probably be more vocal than I would be," Jabara said. "He’d be an awesome son, brother, and uncle."
