The murder trial for Raul Ponce-Rocha may be over, but that doesn't mean people have stopped talking about it.
Many shoppers in the Wausau Center Mall were discussing the trial as well as the verdict.
A jury unanimously found the 23-year-old guilty, but not all people in the community agree with the decision.
"I don't think it was a fair verdict. I don't think it was a fair trial. I feel the prosecution didn't do a full investigation. I feel there was a lot of other options," said Kandise Sporer of Wausau.
"I'm glad he got what he deserved. That poor young girl didn't deserve what happened. I'm glad for Breanna's family. They deserve some justice," said Chris Weems of Wausau.
"Well if he's guilty its good," said Margaret Kwarciany of Wausau.
"I'm kind of upset because they should take another look at the evidence because I have a feel he may have been framed," said Amber Hill of Edgar.
Raul Ponce-Rocha will be sentenced March 22. He faces a minimum of life in prison with a chance of early release after 20 years.
