COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. - After over four hours of deliberation, a jury finds James Menard guilty of murder. Menard now faces prison for the 2010 New Year's death of Naples teen Jake Couture.
A six person jury found Menard guilty of the lesser charge of manslaughter and third degree murder for the shooting of one teen and the killing of 17-year-old Couture.
Menard's family gave a very tearful goodbye to their brother and son.
The Couture family waited behind. They tell WINK News they feel like both families lost a loved one today.
Jake's sister and brother say listening to Menard on the stand during the trial was the toughest because they didn't see remorse.
Menard's sentencing is scheduled for February 11th. He could get life in prison for third degree murder.
