A jury has reached a verdict Thursday in the trial of the final suspect in the deadly home invasion that claimed the life of a four-year-old Struthers boy.

Twenty-one-year-old Brandon Crump, who was accused of being the triggerman in the deadly home invasion that claimed the life of four-year-old Rowan Sweeney has been found guilty of the murder.

He was also found guilty of the attempted murder and felonious assault of Andre McCoy, Yarnell Green, Alexis Schneider and Cassandra Marsicola, as well as aggravated burglary, aggravated robbery and conspiracy.

The jury unanimously found Crump guilty on all charges against him. 

During closing arguments on Wednesday, the prosecution stated that after all the testimony was given and all evidence was shown, they feel that they've proven their case "beyond a reasonable doubt."

"You're going to find Brandon Crump guilty," said Assistant Prosecutor Mike Yacovone.

Yacovone referenced testimonies from Rowan's mother Alexis Schneider and victim and co-defendant Andre McCoy both identifying Crump as the murderer stating that McCoy in particular has no reason to lie or fabricate the story.

"He's pointing the finger at Brandon Crump. Why? Because he did it," Yacovone said.

Yacovone went on to reference the ballistic markings, as well as Crump's DNA on shell casings from the murder weapon stating that Bryant's DNA was not there.

Yacovone referenced location data presented to the court showing that both Crump and co-defendant Kimonie Bryant were at the scene of the crime at the time it was committed, as well as the hours after the fact.

Crump's phone records were also referenced including the video of the hand with the red sleeve spreading out cash, as well as another video of a Black male walking down the street in a black hoodie showing off money and a video of the murder weapon.

"You all know exactly what happened here. You can figure it out by using your common sense. ... Don't let [Crump] get away with this. He's guilty," Yacovone said.

The defense was up next and asked the jury not to rely on their emotions, but on the evidence when making their decision.

The defense brought up the text messages between McCoy and his girlfriend and victim Cassandra Marsicola about how he wanted to rob victim Yarnell Green and that part of the reason the two were there were to sell Schneider Percocet, which he states is why Green took the money out.

The defense went on to bring up phone calls and text communications between McCoy and co-defendant Bryant minutes after this text exchange and how the two had been friends since they were young.

The defense asserted that Crump's name or records of communication involving him are nowhere to be found in the time leading up to the murder. 

When addressing testimony about Facebook messages and audio calls on Facebook between Bryant and Crump, the defense asserted that the plan to rob the house wasn't hatched until shortly after all of these messages and calls.

The defense added that communications between the two didn't resume until after the murder.

The defense also referenced a picture of Bryant and McCoy that was deleted after the murder and how Bryant covered his tracks after the murder referencing the fact that Bryant's cell phone still hasn't been found to this day.

The defense reminded the jury that there is no metadata as to where the videos on Crump's phone came from or where they were taken and that in the one with the red sleeve, you don't see anyone's face.

The defense then referenced Schneider's testimony bringing up how she was shown photos of suspects including Bryant and how she became emotional when she saw Bryant's photo.

"These photos do not have people's names on them. They do not have little stars on there that say 'hey, pick this person out,'" said defense attorney Lou DeFabio.

DeFabio referenced testimony that she simply associated that face with the news reports, but reminded the jury of testimony that Schneider told police she hadn't seen any news reports on Bryant and said to her mother "that's the man who shot my baby" when shown Bryant's picture.

"Imagine the coincidence that six photographs are shown to Alexis. One of them is Kimonie Bryant. Imagine the coincidence that she just happens to pick him as the one who was in the house," DeFabio said.

DeFabio added that Marsicola also identified Bryant in the photo lineup referencing his eyes and the fact that Schneider never got in touch with police after Green showed her a photo of Crump causing her to believe him to be the triggerman.

DeFabio also mentioned testimony from Marsicola that the gunman was at least six feet tall arguing that Crump is not that tall.

DeFabio added that a gun with a light on it as well as two red jackets described in multiple witness testimonies were found in a home connected to Bryant rather than Crump and reminded the jury that investigators only checked for blood and did not try to test for any DNA.

When referencing McCoy's testimony, DeFabio argued that this testimony was part of a plea deal and he was cooperating with the prosecution in order to escape the death penalty and instead get 15 years to life in prison.

DeFabio added that McCoy admitted to being high at the time of the murder and having memory problems due to the injuries he sustained from being shot in the head.

"This is the only case I've ever known that has eyewitness testimony where they pick out the guy ... and suddenly at some point, it's not what it seems. Forget the fact that the IDed him. ... It doesn't make sense," DiFabio said.

"If Andre McCoy told you something that related to the most important of your affairs, would you believe him," he continued.

Yacovone fired back at DiFabio by stating that the McCoy's texts do not definitively say when the robbery plan started. It just says when he decided to tell Marsicola about it and further stated that DiFabio provided "what if" scenarios rather than factual evidence.

Yacovone stated that the two were together because the two were together and that McCoy did not know that Crump was coming because "he wasn't invited to the party."

Yacovone also referenced the fact that a text message from Crump to someone identified only as "Brit Brit" reading "I can't find my keys or my gun" is sent minutes before he and Bryant are seen together implying that Bryant picked him up and drove him to the scene of the crime.

Yacovone fired back at DiFabio's claim that there was no metadata on the video of the money stating that there was a known time the video was taken: less than an hour after the murder.

Additionally, Yacovone argued that if that video was sent to Crump by someone else, there would be records of it, but no such record exists.

When discussing eyewitnesses identifying Bryant, Yacovone reminded the jury of testimony from Marsicola that she picked someone completely unrelated at first followed by Bryant.

Yacovone reminded the jury that Bryant was a familiar face to Marsicola since her boyfriend was friends with him and she had given him a ride home before.

As for Schneider's comment to her mother, Yacovone argues that this comment was made after police notified her of Bryant's arrest and showed her his mug shot.

Yacovone reiterated that even though McCoy had entered a plea deal, he still has no reason to lie because he was also ordered to testify against Bryant.
