Verdict for Darrell Eiland:
  • Conspiracy to commit murder - GUILTY
  • Aggravated assault - GUILTY
  • Aggravated assault - GUILTY
  • Aggravated battery - GUILTY
  • Possession of a firearm during commission of a crime - GUILTY
Verdict for Ernest Hudson:
  • Conspiracy to commit murder - GUILTY

For Eiland, the court decided to drop one count of aggravated assault and let the judge direct a verdict because the assault did not involve Willis.
