CRAWFORDVILLE, Fla. (AP) - A Florida Panhandle man has been convicted of attacking his ex-girlfriend with a knife and killing her father and new boyfriend.

A Wakulla County jury found 27-year-old Andrew Michael Wilson guilty Friday of two counts of first-degree murder and one count of attempted murder. Jurors will return next week to recommend life in prison or the death penalty.

One night in March 2011, authorities say Wilson sneaked into the singlewide trailer of his ex-girlfriend’s father. That’s where he fatally stabbed 62-year-old John McKenzie and 24-year-old Patrick Pittman. Then-19-year-old Gabrielle McKenzie - the mother of Wilson’s infant son - was stabbed multiple times but survived.

The Tallahassee Democrat (https://goo.gl/yLQ85G ) reports that Wilson was arrested within hours of the attack after he crashed his car in front of a southwest Georgia deputy’s house.
