HARTFORD CITY, Ind. (AP) - A jury has found an eastern Indiana man guilty of two counts of murder in the shooting deaths of a man and his daughter earlier this year.

A Blackford Circuit Court jury convicted 60-year-old Charles Whittington of Portland in the Feb. 5 slayings of 40-year-old Shane Paul Williamson and his 14-year-old daughter, Katelin, at the Hartford City apartment building where the victims lived.

The Star Press reports (http://tspne.ws/1SdfTfN ) Whittington showed little reaction to the verdict. A survivor of Katelin Williamson began to cry.

A witness testified during the trial that Whittington was agitated by Shane Williamson’s online contact with his former girlfriend.

It was not immediately clear when Whittington would be sentenced.
