SEATTLE (AP) - A man accused of killing three men he managed at a Seattle flower warehouse has been found guilty of murder.

The Seattle Post-Intelligencer reports (https://bit.ly/1JP9mCs) that 40-year-old Alberto Avila-Cardenas has been convicted in the 2010 deaths of 25-year-old Jesus Bejar-Avila, 26-year-old Yazmani Quezada-Ortiz and 19-year-old Cristian Alberto Rangel.

King County prosecutors alleged that Avila-Cardenas and two accomplices had kidnapped the three men as they were working, drove them to a Kent tree farm and shot each in the head.

The bodies of the three men were discovered at the nursery in March 2011.

Investigators found Rangel’s blood on a gun during a search of Avila-Cardenas’ home. Avila-Cardenas initially told detectives he didn’t know about the dead men.

He faces up to 95 years in prison.
