FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) A jury has returned a guilty verdict against a man accused of killing a store owner in December of 2014.  The jury found Sanchez Williams guilty on two counts of murder, robbery resulting in serious injury and using a gun during a felony that resulted in death.

Williams was arrested in April for the homicide of Moath Nassir, the owner of Big Al’s Convenience Store on McKinnie Avenue.

An autopsy ruled Nassir died from a gunshot wound. The crime was caught on surveillance video, part of which was later released by police to help find the person responsible.

Days after Nassir’s death, hundreds of people on the southeast side rallied for justice at the store.

Williams will be sentenced at a later date.
