Chauncey Bailey, former editor of the Oakland Post who was murdered last August while investigating Your Black Muslim Bakery and the Muslim splinter group's shady dealings, received the prestigious George Polk Award last week for local journalism. Congrats, Bailey!

His alleged killer, Your Black Muslim Bakery handyman Devaughndre Broussard, was also interviewed by 60 Minutes, which aired last night. According to CBS 5:

In the interview, Broussard repeated his claim that he was coerced into confessing to the Bailey shooting by Yusuf Bey IV, son of the bakery's founder. The pair talked privately in a meeting arranged by police after Broussard's arrest.

"I didn't kill Chauncey Bailey. I gave false answers to the Oakland police because I was overcome with emotion," Broussard said in the 60 Minutes interview.

Although he initially confessed to the killing of the esteemed journalist, he has since denied any involvement. Broussard has pleaded not guilty and is in the clink awaiting trial.
