UPDATE: The jury has convicted Clabon Berniard on all counts.
He’d been charged with first-degree murder, two counts of first-degree robbery, two counts of second-degree assault and one count of first-degree burglary.
The jury has reached a verdict in the last trial connected to a home-invasion robbery that killed an Edgewood father. The verdict is expected to be read as early as 11 a.m.
We will update this post when the verdict is announced.
Clabon Berniard, 24, is the last of four defendants accused in a botched robbery that led to the killing of Edgewood resident Jim Sanders on April 28, 2010. The robbers went to the home after Sanders advertised a diamond ring for sale on Craigslist.
Berniard claims he was not there.
The three other defendants in the case admitted to taking part in the robbery. All were convicted. None would testify at Berniard’s trial.
