WASHINGTON (CBSDC/AP) — Michael Wonson has been convicted again of first-degree murder in the slayings of two people in 2000 when 40 shots were fired at a crowd in front of a Eastern High School.
The 33-year-old from Washington was convicted Wednesday. He faces life in prison at sentencing July 24.
According to evidence presented at trial, Wonson and a co-conspirator wanted to kill someone Wonson had gotten into an altercation with at a nightclub several days before May 17, 2000.
The two shot at a crowd gathered in front of the school, killing 21-year-old Charles Jackson and 21-year-old Ivory Harrison.
Wonson was convicted in 2002 of murder in the crimes, but District of Columbia Court of Appeals granted him a new trial.
