VERMILION COUNTY, Ill. (WCIA) — A man accused of a double murder in Danville has been found guilty.

30-year old Glen Torres, Jr., has been convicted of shooting 29-year old Teddy Hill and 28-year old Zarra Strickland to death in August 2015.

Since jurors found Torres personally discharged the deadly weapon, he must receive a mandatory life term when he’s sentenced next month.

Defense attorneys argued Torres was not in Danville at the time of the murders, but rather at home with his daughter.
