Both professional and amateur athletes have been included, although amateurs on this list must have competed in the Olympics or some other equal level of competition.
Who are some sports stars convicted of murder? Bertil Fox and Craig MacTavish are just two notable individuals in the sports world who are on this list. While Fox was, in fact, convicted of murder, MacTavish's charge was manslaughter.
If there are any athletes convicted of murder missing here, please feel free to let us know in the comments. For whatever reason, jocks have a knack for getting themselves into trouble with the law – but these homicidal athletes are the most extreme cases.
