Man found guilty of killing two people will wait till Monday to be sentenced

South Bend, Ind. A South Bend man was convicted Thursday for his role in a 2012 shooting that left two teens dead.

A jury found 27-year-old Charles Moore guilty of one count of robbery and two counts each of murder and felony murder. The state has requested that he spend life in prison without parole.

Prosecutors will present evidence in support of that sentence to the jury when that phase of the trial continues Friday.

Moore's co-defendant, 22-year-old Jermon Gavin, is also facing robbery and murder charges in the case.

The pair's admitted accomplice, 21-year-old Rakeem White, has already learned his punishment for helping the two men by giving false information to police during their investigation.

He was sentenced last September to four years in prison after pleading guilty to "assisting a criminal."

The shootings happened back in January of 2012 on the city's northwest side.

19-year-old Jazmin Conlee and 19-year-old Alejandro Tinoco were shot to death inside of their home in the 1100 block of North Adams Street.
