Jury had no choice but to convict with huge evidence piled before them.Defendant owned the exact type of gun which killed the victim and had no explanation where it was.Lying to the police about it didn't help.Training himself how to kill with the double-tap style used mostly by pro hit men plus terrible alibi and traveled to work only 52 seconds from victims home gave the jury no choice,they hardly finished lunch before it was unanimous.Another trial for the girlfriend in November will likely have same result.
