TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — An Arizona jury has found a second defendant guilty in the home invasion killing of a father and daughter.

The Green Valley News reports 36-year-old Jason Eugene Bush was convicted in Tucson of two counts of first-degree murder in the May 30, 2009, slaying of Raul Flores and his 9-year-old daughter, Brisenia.

Jurors deliberated 2½ hours Thursday and for a little over an hour Friday before returning the guilty verdicts.

The Pima County Superior Court jury now will hear more testimony in the aggravation phase of the trial and decide if Bush gets the death penalty.

His co-defendant, Shawna Forde, was recently convicted in the deaths of Flores and his daughter and was sentenced to death.
