ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. (AP) — Three men were convicted of murder Tuesday in the slayings of six people who authorities said were bludgeoned with baseball bats in a dispute over an Xbox video game system.
The jury will return later in the week to decide whether the men should receive life in prison or death by lethal injection.
Jurors deliberated about six hours before returning its verdict against Troy Victorino, 29, and Michael Salas and Jerone Hunter, both 20.
Prosecutors said Victorino was angry with victim Erin Belanger, 22, who had him evicted when she found him living in her grandmother's home in Deltona. She kept some of his belongings, including some clothing and the video game system.
