SARASOTA COUNTY - A jury has found John Lee guilty on two counts of first-degree murder, according toe the North Port Sun.

Lee was on trial for the 2011 murders of his girlfriend Traci Nabergall and neighbor Jason Salter.

Prosecutors claimed he killed them, in a jealous rage. The defense argued that Lee found his girlfriend being attacked and killed Salter in self-defense.

Jurors received the case Friday afternoon and deliberated for about an hour and a half before returning a guilty verdict.

Jurors will return to court next Wednesday for the penalty phase. Lee could be sentenced to death or life in prison without parole.
