RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - A Richmond man has been convicted in the fatal shootings of two men in a dispute over dog feces left outside an apartment.
A Richmond Circuit Court jury recommended a 46-year prison term for 37-year-old Darryl Lamont Jefferson after finding him guilty Monday night of two counts each of first-degree murder and using a firearm in a felony.
The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports 24-year-old Ahmad K. Phillips of Virginia Beach and his 28-year-old brother, Ahkeem, were shot April 18.
A friend of Jefferson's, 21-year-old Randy L. Trent, faces a murder trial in October.
Authorities said Ahmad Phillips had found dog feces in front of his apartment. Trent lived in the apartment building and was the dog's owner. Trent had summoned Jefferson after arguing with Ahmad Phillips.
