Albany -- A Dougherty County jury deliberated only 25 minutes before finding a man guilty of murder in the death of a convenience store customer.

 Bobby Thomas was sentenced to two life sentences without the chance of parole.

Thomas was tried for the death of 54 year old Herby Wells, a customer at A-J's Dixie Food Store on East Broad Avenue in January 2006. Wells was shot in the head during a robbery attempt.

Investigators say Thomas did not fire the gun. An accomplice, Earl Scott, is charged with shooting Wells, and could face the death penalty if convicted.
