THREE of five men who stood trial concerning the murder of Kyle Bruner, an American sailor, just feet away from the Paradise Island Bridge in Nassau were unanimously convicted on Tuesday evening.

The verdicts of the 12-member jury came after more than seven hours of deliberation but the panel was ultimately convinced that Craig Johnson, 22, Anton Bastian, 21, and 23-year-old Marcellus Williams intentionally caused Bruner's death in May 2013.

The trio face sentencing on January 27, 2016.

Jamaal Dorfevil, 30, was found not guilty on the murder charge but found guilty of armed robbery as were Johnson, Bastian and Williams.

A fifth accused, 21-year-old Leo Bethel, had both charges discontinued against him via a nolle prosequi within moments of Justice Indra Charles concluding her summation of the evidence.
