FORT PAYNE, Ala. – A DeKalb County jury found a man guilty of capital murder Thursday afternoon.

Wednesday afternoon the jury heard closing arguments. The jury broke for the evening without a decision and resumed deliberations Thursday morning.
The jury handed down a verdict just before 2 p.m. Thursday. A sentencing date is set for May 21. Jones is expected to be sentenced to life without parole.
