The Dougherty County jury found Jordan Harris guilty on all counts of murder, armed robbery, and aggravated assault.

They found Ezekial James guilty of one count of financial transaction card fraud.

Harris and James had been on trial for the 2010 armed robbery, shooting, and subsequent death two months later of former Lee County Commissioner and Albany business owner Walter Phelps.
