PROVIDENCE, Rhode Island — A Rhode Island jury has found an 18-year-old man guilty of plotting with three other people to steal money and drugs, leading to the fatal shootings of three people two years ago.

The attorney general's office said Monday that a jury has found Quandell Husband guilty on all counts for participating in the killings in Providence. He faces six consecutive life sentences, plus 10 years.

Husband was one of four men charged in the slayings of a young couple — Shemeeka Barros and Michael Martin — and their friend Damien Colon.

Prosecutors argued that while Husband may not have been the shooter, he is just as responsible for the deaths. Defense attorney Thomas Briody said Husband was at home with his family when the killings occurred.

Briody declined to comment.
