OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - An Omaha man has been found guilty of first-degree murder in the July 2012 shooting deaths of a man and his two teenage sons.

A jury reached the verdict Friday in the case of 35-year-old Anthony Davis after several hours of deliberations. Davis was convicted on three counts of first-degree murder and three counts of use of a weapon to commit a felony.

Davis was charged in connection to the deaths of 44-year-old Miguel Avalos, 18-year-old Miguel Avalos Jr. and 16-year-old Jose Avalos. An alleged accomplice, Timothy J. Britt, faces similar charges in the case and is awaiting trial. Court records do not list an attorney for him.

Witnesses testified during a two-week trial that the men went to the Avalos home to steal drugs and money.
