LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. (AP) - A metro Atlanta jury has convicted one man of felony murder for his role in a deadly home invasion, while finding two co-defendants guilty of lesser charges.

The split verdicts Wednesday concluded the Gwinnett County trial of three men charged in an August 2014 home invasion in which Adam Schrier of Duluth was killed and his wife and 9-year-old child were shot.

Police say a crew of robbers went to Schrier’s home looking for drugs and money, but ultimately may have entered the wrong house.

Local news outlets report the jury convicted Devon Jenkins of felony murder. The other defendants were acquitted of murder charges. Pierre Scott was found guilty of burglary and other crimes, while James Stokeshave was convicted of conspiracy to commit a crime.
