PA followup: Hart found guilty of third degree murder
An Allegheny County jury Friday found Herbert Hart, 26, guilty of third-degree murder in the shooting death of a man at his Homewood house last year.
The jury deliberated for about three hours before reaching its verdict. Hart faces a maximum penalty of 40 years in prison and is scheduled for sentencing Sept. 24.
Assistant District Attorney Michael Berquist asked the jury to find Hart guilty of first-degree murder in the death of Robert Wilson, 35, of East Liberty.
