AKRON, Ohio (AP) - An Ohio jury has convicted a man of aggravated murder and other charges in the fatal shooting of a father and his two teenage children during a home invasion robbery on Dec. 31, 2013.

Twenty-three-year-old Michael Hendon showed no emotion as a judge in Akron read the verdict Friday.

Hendon was on trial for the slayings of 42-year-old John Kohler, 18-year-old stepdaughter Ashley Carpenter and 14-year-old son David Kohler-Carpenter at Kohler’s Barberton home. They were shot in the head. Kohler’s girlfriend was shot in the head but survived.

Authorities have said Hendon’s 32-year-old brother Eric fired the fatal shots. He faces the death penalty when his trial starts Oct. 13. Michael Hendon didn’t face the death penalty after being deemed mentally incompetent.

Michael Hendon’s attorneys weren’t available to comment.
