Marion County Superior Court Judge Mark Stoner convicted 28-year-old Darrin Banks of murder and battery by means of a deadly weapon on the second day of his bench trial.

Banks and 30-year-old Brian Palmer were charged with murder in the March 29, 2018, shooting that killed Malaysia Robson and wounded her aunt.

Palmer faces a jury trial in November.
