RACINE, Wis. (AP) -- A Racine man has been convicted for his role in a 2005 triple homicide.
A jury on Friday convicted 32-year-old Demetrus N. Ozier in the killings of Aaron Woods and Ryan Lockridge and the wounding of four others on July 17, 2005, in Racine.
Woods, Lockridge and a third man, Frank Mister, were killed early that morning in shootings sparked by an alleged dispute about a rigged dice game.
Ozier was convicted of two counts of being a party to first-degree intentional homicide and four counts of being a party to attempted first-degree intentional homicide. His sentencing is set for Oct. 16.
Another defendant, 30-year-old Juwan Tyrae Matthews, of Racine, is set for trial on similar charges Aug. 11.
