Sharnard Smith was convicted of murder in June 2013's Brickhouse Production shooting on Schilling Avenue. Smith was found guilty of shooting LaShelton Stanford 7 times, killing him. He was sentenced to life in prison with the chance for parole.

The home invasion trial was rescheduled to start January 26th.
