Jury finds man guilty of negligent homicide in 2005 case
A New York man has been found guilty of negligent homicide in an eight-year-old murder case out of Kingsport.
A Sullivan County jury convicted Leslie Ware Monday in the Sole Candle Shop murder case after two days of deliberations.
The prosecution says Ware shot Jeffrin Nolan and Terrence Alexander execution-style in 2005. They say the candle shop was a front for Nolan's cocaine business and that Ware and his co-defendants went there to kill and rob Nolan.
Prosecutors believe Alexander was a low-level cocaine dealer who was at the shop to buy drugs and was killed because he witnessed Nolan's murder.
The defense says co-defendants cut deals in exchange for testimony against Ware.
Sentencing for Leslie Ware is set for October 14.
