INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - A Marion County jury found a man guilty of murdering two people over the volume of a stereo.
The jury found Edward Lay guilty of two counts of murder and one count of attempted murder. They deliberated into the night, reaching the verdicts around 1:30 a.m.
Lay’s conviction stems from an incident in August that left 37-year-old Mary Swift and 33-year-old Kelly Jinks dead. A third person was hurt but survived.
The three victims were shot after an argument over the volume of a stereo escalated, police said at the time. Swift and Lay had been arguing over the stereo when Swift shot her. When a couple tried to intervene, they were also shot.
Lay will be sentenced on July 19.
