DECATUR, AL (WAFF) -

A Decatur jury returned a guilty verdict in the trial of the third suspect accused of murdering a man in 2012.

Jameson Staten is charged with murder in the death of Glenn Blackwood. His trial began Tuesday. On Wednesday, co-defendant Lorin Wilson testified that Staten gave him the gun that was used to shoot Blackwood at the victim's apartment in 2012.

Wilson pleaded guilty to murder earlier this week. He will be sentenced at a later date. Steven King Jr. also pleaded guilty to murder and testified against Staten. King was sentenced to three years in prison.

The jury took about an hour to come back with their verdict against Staten. Sentencing will be at a later date.
