UPDATE: 2 Convicted in Death of Louisiana Boxer Brandon Broussard
According to 15th Judicial District Attorney Donald Landry's office, Shavis Toby and his brother Carlos Toby, were convicted of Conspiracy to Commit Second-Degree Murder.
The jury returned the verdict against the two brothers just before nine o'clock Saturday night.
In addition, DA Landry says that Shavis Toby was found guilty of Second-Degree Murder, meaning he gets an automatic life sentence.
It was an eleven-day trial that was led by prosecutors Alisa Gothreaux and Roya Boustany.
DA Landry had this to say about the Gothreaux and Boustany,
A two-week murder trial takes many weeks to prepare and work. Alisa and Roya and their staff were diligent, detailed and did an excellent job.
Detectives working the case tracked the two brothers, as one came from Texas and the other from New Iberia, to converge on Lafayette for their deadly plan to kill Broussard.
