CRISP COUNTY, GA (WALB) – A Crisp County jury Friday convicted a man in a double murder.

27-year old Amin Dennis was found guilty on all 12-counts and will be sentenced in September.

He killed 36-year old Harold Reese Junior and 51-year old Jerry Lee Lawrence.

Reese's body was found in a burned out SUV last August. Lawrence's body was in a nearby field.

Two other defendants, 26-year-old Corey Dennis and Jennifer McCleod will be tried later.
