Ohio brothers convicted in shooting of bystander

Posted: Updated:
CLEVELAND (AP) - A jury has convicted two brothers of murder in the death of a bystander while allegedly shooting at each other last year in Cleveland.

Twenty-five-year-old Jonathan Catron and 23-year-old Carvin Catron were found guilty Wednesday after a four-day trial. They were charged with killing 20-year-old James Swindler III.

Swindler, who lived next door to the Catrons, had stepped onto the front porch of his home after hearing a commotion on the street. Jonathan Catron stood across the street and his brother was in front of Swindler's home when the siblings fired their guns.

Ballistic tests showed that Jonathan Catron fired the fatal shot. Carvin Catron's attorney said his client fired a shot into the air and not at Swindler.

Both brothers were sentenced to 21 years to life in prison.
