Placerville, Calif. ( & KRNV) --Andrew Sanford, the man accused of killing a 16-year-old in 1980 in South Lake Tahoe, has has been found guilty of first degree murder.

The jury deliberated for less than two hours before rendering their verdict of guilty and was comprised of four men and eight women.

The key piece of evidence in the case was that some duct tape found around the victim’s body has Schluter’s DNA on it. It also has multiple other DNA samples from people who have not been identified.

The sentencing phase of this case is set for June 16th, 2014 at 1:30 p.m. This is the second cold case murder conviction the District Attorney's Office has obtained in recent months.

The DNA found on the duct tape was the defendant's, Andrew Sanford, NOT his defense attorney's, Mr. Schlueter! You should print a retraction and correction!
