Justice was served

St. Joseph County Prosecutor John McDonough said justice was served Monday, as jurors in the Andy Brown murder trial issued a verdict of guilty of second-degree murder.

The 37-year-old Brown was also found guilty on a charge of felony use of a firearm.

Monday’s decision capped the nine-day trial in which the nine-woman, three-man jury heard testimony related to the October 2013 shooting death of Sturgis-area CPA David Locey.

McDonough said the verdict was the result of a solid effort by the county’s major crimes task force unit, witnesses who testified on behalf of the prosecution and assistant prosecutor Josh Robare.

Circuit Court Judge Paul Stutesman set a sentencing date of Aug. 29.

Brown faces up to life in prison.
