ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A Colquitt County jury returned a guilty verdict Wednesday afternoon in a murder trial. 

Twenty-one-year-old Craig Gandy has been found guilty in a deadly home invasion that happened last year.

Gandy broke into the Coventry Circle home of James and Karen Moore in October. She was shot six times and killed, her husband was shot three times, but survived.

Prosecutors say Gandy had previously worked for the Moore's and went to their home to rob them. 

The jury only deliberated 30 minutes.  Gandy now faces life in prison.  Co-defendant Jim Cloud pleaded guilty to one count of armed robbery. He's not yet been sentenced.
