Man found guilty in slaying of parents
FORT WORTH - A 21-year-old man who prosecutors say conspired with friends to fatally shoot and stab his parents so he could collect on their $1.65 million estate has been found guilty of capital murder.
A jury found Andrew Wamsley guilty Friday in the December 2003 deaths of his parents, Rick and Suzanna Wamsley, at their Mansfield home.
The sentencing phase is set for Monday. Wamsley faces life in prison or the death penalty.
Wamsley's friend Susana Toledano, 21, admitted shooting and stabbing Wamsley's parents. Toledano has testified that Andrew Wamsley and his girlfriend, Chelsea Lea Richardson, 21, pressured her into shooting and stabbing the Wamsleys.
Last year, Richardson was sentenced to death for her role in the killings.
