PITTSBURGH — A jury found a Pennsylvania man guilty in the 2009 killings of three Pittsburgh police officers who responded to his mother's 911 call about an escalating argument.

The jury deliberating for just over three hours Saturday before returning the verdict against 24-year-old Richard Poplawski. He was found guilty of all 28 counts he faced.

Poplawski was found guilty of first-degree murder in all three killings, the three most serious charges he faced.

The trial now enters a penalty phase in which the jury will hear evidence about his mental state, background and other factors before determining if he gets the death penalty or life in prison without parole.
