    A jury returned a guilty verdict in the case of a man accused of posing as a Pepco worker during a deadly home invasion. 

    David Williams, 44, was shot inside his home in the 13200 block of Livingstone Endeavor Drive in Bowie, Md., last July. He died at the scene.

    Police said Williams, a businessman, was targeted for his money.

    Police arrested John Fitzgerald Haston and Craig Stevens Brooks. They were charged with first-degree murder and armed robbery.

    Brooks, 50, pleaded guilty in April and was sentenced to 25 years in prison without parole.

    Haston was found guilty of first-degree murder after about three hours of deliberations Monday afternoon.
