WICHITA, Kan. (AP) A 20-year-old Wichita man has been convicted of capital murder in last year’s shootings of two people inside a Dollar General store.
The Wichita Eagle reports a Sedgwick County jury deliberated less than 90 minutes Wednesday before finding Marquis Marshall guilty. Prosecutors were not seeking the death penalty, meaning Marshall faces a mandatory life sentence on each of the two counts.
Surveillance tapes from the November 2012 killings show a man entering the Dollar General holding a semi-automatic pistol and firing several times at employee Zachary Hunt, 22, and customer Henry Harvey, 79. Both died at the scene.
No robbery occurred, and no motive has been offered by police or by witnesses who testified in the three-day trial.
Marshall was arrested two days after the killings during a traffic stop.
