DC Man Convicted in Armored Car Driver Slaying

GREENBELT, Md. -- A federal jury convicted a Washington man in the slaying of an armored car driver Wednesday.

Earl Davis, 39, was found guilty of several charges, including the August 2004 murder of Dunbar armored car employee Jason Schwindler, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.

Schwindler had exited the armored car at a Hyattsville bank carrying more than $57,000 in cash and almost $6,000 in checks when Davis and another man shot at him multiple times, prosecutors said. The pair then took the money and attempted to leave in a Jeep but were struck by the armored car and eventually fled in a bank customer's car.

DNA evidence from a hat and the two vehicles linked Davis to the crime, prosecutors said. Davis faces life in prison at sentencing Sept. 18.
