Mortgage-arson defendants convicted

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - After a more than three-week-long federal trial in Albany, three family members from Grady County are found guilty of conspiracy charges to fraud and arson charges.

Elbert Walker, Junior, who is known as Shula, Darryl Burk, and Shirley Burk, were all found guilty Friday in Federal Court.

Prosecutors say the three bought homes, took out mortgage loans, then declared bankruptcy and burned the homes.

Walker was also found guilty of possession of firearms by a convicted felon. 

The three will be sentenced at a later date.
