Smithson Guilty on All Charges
There was a gasp from Smithson's family and friends when the verdict to the Murder One charge was read by the jury foreman.
Smithson showed no emotion and stared straight ahead as each charges were read and verdicts were announced.
GUILTY, GUILTY, GUILTY, GUILTY, GUILTY, GUILTY, GUILTY, GUILTY.
As the verdict sunk in, more and more of Smithson's friends and family began to sob.
On the other side of the aisle, Kyle and Carol Shephard, Jason's parents, hugged each other and wept quietly.
More to come.
UPDATE: Smithson now faces a death penalty hearing which will begin Monday.
A gag order is still in effect which prevents anyone involved in the case from speaking to the press. That includes family members, witnesses, lawyers and law enforcement.
