The Boise man accused of leading a hired gunman to the Boise apartment where two residents were murdered in May 2014 was convicted by an Ada County jury Monday, KBOI-TV, Channel 2, reports.
Samari Winn, 36, was found guilty of two counts of aiding and abetting first-degree murder in the deaths of Travontae Calloway and Elliot Bailey, and one count of aiding and abetting attempted first-degree murder against Calloway's girlfriend, Jeanette Juraska.
Prosecutors say Winn helped Pennsylvania resident John Douglas, 46, of Reading, Pennsylvania, locate his victims. According to court documents, Winn sold drugs supplied by Anthony Robins Jr., who was convicted of ordering the hit on Calloway and Bailey because he suspected they stole 30 pounds of marijuana. Both Douglas and Robins, who split time between homes in Boise and Fremont, Calif., were convicted in late January and could face life in prison.
Winn, the first of the three to be arrested but the last to stand trial, also could face up to life in prison when he is sentenced June 3.

Douglas is scheduled to be sentenced May 24, with Robins to be sentenced June 7.
