Stanly Jury Convicts Robinson

On Thursday, a jury found William Eugene Robinson guilty of the first degree murder of Keith Crump and the attempted murder of Robert Tucker, III. The jury convicted both on the theory of felony murder and on premeditation and deliberation. Robinson was also convicted of robbery with a dangerous weapon, larceny of a firearm and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

This jury has found that Robinson shot and killed Mr. Crump while robbing a store in Albemarle.

The state began putting sentencing evidence on at that time. The jury will next have to decide whether Robinson should live or die.
