Willie Cory Godbolt has been found guilty on all charges related to a 2017 shooting spree in Lincoln County that left 8 people dead. 

After a trial that spanned 10 days, a jury convicted Goldbolt, 37, on all 12 counts including four counts of capital murder, four counts of first-degree murder, two counts of kidnapping, and one count each of attempted murder and armed robbery.

Godbolt killed the victims, which included several of his family members and Lincoln County Deputy William Durr, at three separate crime scenes in May 2017.

Sentencing will begin on Wednesday and prosecutors are seeking the death penalty in the case.
