A Harnett County jury has convicted a man of first-degree murder in the 2003 death of a storeowner.
Authorities say Eddie Taylor, of Fayetteville, killed Mitch Faciane during a robbery and shootout at his store on U.S. 401 in Bunnlevel. Faciane’s wife was also shot, but she survived.
The jury also found Taylor guilty of conspiracy to commit robbery and two counts of armed robbery.
The sentencing phase of the trial is expected to begin Thursday. The jury must decide whether Taylor is sentenced to life in prison or given the death penalty.
Taylor’s attorneys argued that evidence was improperly collected and the death does not apply.
