YORK, Pa. (WHTM) – A 23-year-old city man is facing life in prison following his conviction Friday in a two-year-old double homicide case.
Dejerek Smallwood was found guilty on two counts of first-degree murder. His sentencing is scheduled December 18.
Authorities say Smallwood and another man shot and killed 23-year-old Braydon Aldinger and 26-year-old Derek Ferree during a November 2013 drug deal.
Smallwood in January pleaded guilty to two counts of voluntary manslaughter, but he withdrew that plea in April.
His co-defendant, Laquan Pierrelouis, is still awaiting trial.
