GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) - A Greer man has been convicted of killing two people in Greenville County several years ago.

Multiple media outlets report that a jury in Greenville returned a guilty verdict against 26-year-old James Michael Johnson on Thursday.

Johnson was convicted of two counts of murder and two counts of possession of a weapon during a crime and has been sentenced to 30 years in prison.

Eighteen-year-old Amber Daniel and 30-yearold Christopher Porcoro were found shot to death April 3, 2011.

Prosecutors said Johnson, Scott Lowe and Manuel Granados planned to rob Porcoro while he was asleep at his home in Taylors. Lowe testified that he shot both victims when things didn’t go as planned.

Lowe pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter last year. Granados pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter this week.
