Quick guilty verdict in murder of Youngstown teen

Posted: Updated:
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - A jury took less than three hours to convict a suspect of murdering a Youngstown teenager.

After starting to deliberate late Monday morning, the jury in Mahoning County Common Pleas Court handed up a guilty verdict before 3:00 p.m. against 20-year-old Lamar Reese.

Reese was one of two men charged in connection with the September, 2011 murder of 17-year-old Joshua Davis, who was shot to death outside his mother's home on Willis Avenue.

Reese, who turned down a plea deal before the start of  his trial, will be sentenced later on charges of aggravated murder and aggravated robbery.

Frankie Hudson still faces trial in June for his alleged part in the Davis murder.
