ROGERS CITY, Mich. (AP) - A man has been found guilty but mentally ill in the fatal shootings of two brothers who were his partners in a farming business in the northern Lower Peninsula.

Richard Strzelecki still faces life in prison without parole for the deaths of Eugene and Henry Hincka, who were killed in January at their home in Presque Isle County.

The Alpena News (https://bit.ly/1VrTfRv ) says jurors returned a verdict Wednesday. Prosecutors said Strzelecki killed the Hincka brothers because their business was failing. Defense attorney Dan Harris argued that the 64-year-old was insane.

Experts offered different opinions. A psychiatrist, Dr. Norman Miller, told jurors that Strzelecki was delusional and under the influence of a newly prescribed antidepressant.
