RICHLAND TWP., Pa. - Jurors deliberated for about two hours Monday before convicting the man charged in a shooting in Richland Township.
Nicholas Kovatto was convicted of 1st-degree murder in the shooting death of Eric Kramer, 32, in 2015, according to the Bucks County District Attorney's Office.
Witnesses said it started with a fight, and then they saw Kovatto standing over Kramer with a gun before he fired the fatal shot.
Police were called to the 100 block of Richlandtown Pike, where they found Kramer dead in between two parked vehicles.
Kovatto was convicted of all charges, including 1st-degree murder, possession with intent to deliver meth, receiving stolen property and possession of instrument of a crime.
Kovatto faces an automatic life sentence, but the judge delayed sentencing and could add more time because of additional charges.
The jury in Bill Cosby's assault trial agreed on many points in the case and accepted his accuser's testimony as true, but they remained at a hopeless deadlock because of the confusing wording in the texts of the charges, a juror told CNN.Read More »
