WHITEVILLE, NC (WWAY) -- A Columbus County jury has returned guilty verdict on four counts of first degree murder against Danny Thomas. Prosecutors say Thomas killed four people during robberies in Chadbourn in 2005.

Jurors started deliberating this morning. They took an hour-long lunch, and returned the verdict shortly after returning.

Relatives of the victims say the verdict is long overdue.

The trial now moves on to the sentencing phase, which starts tomorrow morning. Thomas faces the death penalty.
