Lance Hernandez, a reporter with 7 News in Denver, Colo., has been in Greeley, Colo., blogging on the trial of Allen Andrade. This is what his latest blog entry says:
“2:30 p.m. Jurors tell judge verdict has been reached.
“At 2:55 p.m. Judge admonishes crowd to keep emotions in check.
“Guilty of first degree murder, Guilty of bias motivated crime, Guilty of aggravated motor vehicle theft in the first degree… and guilty of identity theft.”
Those times are Mountain time.
Other news reports have indicated that jury deliberated for only about 2 hours, and that the first degree murder conviction carries a mandatory sentence of life without parole.
