After over an hour of deliberating Thursday in chambers at Faulkner County courthouse, a jury returned a guilty verdict in the capital murder trial of Ronald Britton.
Britton, 35, of Beebe, had pleaded not guilty to capital murder in connection with the death of 26-year-old Michelle Asher of Greenbrier.
Asher was found dead in her backyard Aug. 14, 2010 with multiple stab wounds to the neck. Britton was arrested later that day in El Paso, Ark.
