Smith found guilty on all counts

After just 3 hours and 18 minutes, the jurors found Byron Smith guilty on all counts — two counts of first-degree murder and two counts of second-degree murder in the shooting deaths of Nick Brady and Haile Kifer.

The judge sentenced Smith to two concurrent life sentences.

    It’s really too bad Mr. Smith couldn’t control himself. If he simply would have called the police after shooting Haile Kifer, she would be in jail today he would be hailed as a hero.

      No he should have called the police after he seen on his video tape of Nick Brady breaking his window

        What if Nick was armed would have the police showed up in time? No they would not have. He should have called 911 after the incident. Imagine someone breaking your door down do you think you would have time to call the police? Probably not. Those 2 kids were no angels and they should never have committed all their crimes. This last robbery happened to be there last crime committed. It was a lose lose situation for everyone. I do agree he went to far as he did admit to on tape but I don’t believe he is guilty of first degree murder. He was a better citizen to this county than those kids were at that point in thee lives. I am not glad they are dead neither am I glad he is in jail. This was a bad situation all the way around.
