After four days of trial, the jury made a unanimous decision that Steven Cozzie is guilty of all charges including first degree murder.

The other charges include sexual assault, aggravated kidnapping, and aggravated child abuse.

During closing arguments, defense attorney Spiro Kypreos said they agree with the prosecutions claim that Cozzie killed Courtney Wilkes in June 2011 while the 15-year-old was on vacation from Georgia.

The jury must now decide whether to sentence Cozzie to life in prison without parole or the death penalty.
