Five years after he admitted to killing and dismembering a man, /* Brian Waldron*/ has been found guilty of murdering Jonathan Taylor. He was also found guilty of mutilation.

Waldron quietly watched as the jurors were polled whether they each individually found him guilty of murder. As the jurors left, Wadron screamed "Go Bulldogs! Right on!"

Waldron had admitted he killed Taylor, cut up the body, and disposed of it up near Shaver Lake. But he said Taylor started the confrontation, and the rest of his actions could be explained by his belief that Taylor was a gang member.

Waldron faces a sentence of life in prison.
