Man Convicted in Double Killing

MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) _ A jury has convicted a man of murder and burglary in the 2003 beating deaths of a Cobb County mother and son.

A Cobb County jury convicted Lawrence Rice less than an hour after resuming deliberations Monday morning. Rice could face the death penalty for the deaths of Connie Mincher and her 14-year-old son Ethan.

He is accused of beating the two to death in their east Cobb home in April 2003. Rice had worked for a video company owned by Connie Mincher's husband. Prosecutors say he quit in a rage when he found out a new hire was making more money.
