Michael Moore: Guilty

( Burlington, Kentucky ) - After just a couple hours of deliberating, a Boone County jury found Michael Moore guilty of two counts of murder and two counts of tampering with evidence in the deaths of his parents.

Warren and Madge Moore were found shot to death in their home in Union in 2009. 

Michael Moore was found by first responders with a gunshot wound to the groin. He initially told police an intruder wounded him and killed his parents. During trial, he testified that his parents had been arguing about painkillers both he and his mother took. Moore said he heard his father shoot his mother. When he went upstairs to confront him, they struggled and Moore was shot in the groin before he shot his father in the head.

Sentencing is set for Tuesday morning. He could be sentenced to death.
