    Updated:

    ALIQUIPPA, Pa. - A Beaver County jury found Lawrence Reddick guilty of first-degree and second-degree murder on Monday

    The jury foreman was teary-eyed as she read the guilty verdicts, and the mothers of the teenage victims both cried and embraced as they heard the decision.  

    Reddick was found guilty of first-degree murder in the slaying of Dane Matheusius and second-degree murder in William Cade Booher's death.

    “Two young boys are dead; there are no winners,” District Attorney David Lozier said. "This was hard. The jury foreman was crying. I really appreciate that they took this seriously."
