A Starkville man was found guilty of murder Friday.
A jury found Dennis Thompson, 22, guilty of second degree murder and three counts of aggravated assault Friday in Oktibbeha County Circuit Court.
Thomas was accused of fatally shooting Curtis “C.K.” Randle, 25, after a graduation party in May 2010. The incident occurred near Club 124 on D.L. Conner Drive inside the Starkville city limits. Prosecutors alleged Thompson shot into a crowd with a .40 caliber weapon, fatally wounding Randle and injuring three others.
He is also charged with aggravated assault for his role in a November 2012 shooting in a Starkville trailer park that left one man injured.
Thompson will be sentenced on Friday’s verdict Thursday morning.
