Two brothers were found guilty of first-degree murder in the 2010 barbershop murder that left a young mother dead as she tried to shield her baby from bullets.
A Sacramento jury handed down their verdict today and found Orland Mitchell Junior and his brother, Louis Mitchell, guilty in the murder of Monique Nelson on December 14, 2010.
A third suspect, James Carney, was found guilty of voluntary manslaughter while a fourth defendant, Larry Jones Jr., was found not guilty on all charges.
Nelson was Christmas shopping with her 2-year-old son, Jayden, at a strip mall on Stockton Boulevard when a gunfight broke out inside Fly Cuts and Styles Barbershop.
Nelson was shot in the parking lot while she was shielding her son. The boy was not injured in the shooting.
