PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A Vietnam native has been found guilty of murdering two brothers and dumping their bodies into a Philadelphia river.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports (https://bit.ly/2gLIXyu) the jury quickly found 44-year-old Tam Minh Le guilty on all counts Thursday. Now they must decide if he should be sentenced to death or life in prison.

Prosecutors say Le had a business relationship with 31-year-old Vu “Kevin” Huynh and his 28-year-old brother Viet. They say the brothers sold large amounts of marijuana.

Prosecutors allege Le tortured and stabbed the brothers in August 2014 along with another man over a $100,000 debt they owed him.

All three were dumped into the Schuylkill (SKOO’-kul) River, their faces covered with duct tape and their legs weighted down with cement. One man survived.

Le’s lawyer says his client was made a scapegoat.
