2 men convicted of fatally shooting Syracuse couple in 2015


WARSAW, Ind. (AP) — Two men have been found guilty of murder in the shooting last year of a young couple in northern Indiana.

WSBT-TV reports a Kosciusko County jury deliberated more than seven hours Thursday before finding 23-year-old Brandon Woody and 24-year-old Kyle Dehart guilty of killing 23-year-old Tara Thornburg and 19-year-old Joshua Knisely of Syracuse in February 2015. Dehart also was found guilty of obstruction of justice.

Prosecutors said the couple was killed during a marijuana deal.
