Spring Hill Man Guilty of Killing Mother, Stepfather

NEW PORT RICHEY, Fla. (AP) — A Tampa Bay area man has been convicted of killing his mother and stepfather.

A Pasco County jury found 40-year-old Jackie Lee Braden Jr. guilty Thursday of first-degree murder. He faces life in prison.

Authorities say Braden fatally shot Sherrill and David Wright, both 54. They were found dead in their Shady Hills home in 2008.

Braden’s attorney said the prosecution failed to prove its case and called no defense witnesses.
