RIVERSIDE, Calif. (AP) — Prosecutors say verdicts have been reached in the trial of the fourth man accused of killing a Marine sergeant and his wife in their Southern California home.

Riverside County District Attorney's spokesman John Hall says the verdicts will be read in court on Tuesday afternoon in the trial of 27-year-old Kesaun Sykes.

Sykes is one of four former Marines charged in the murders of Sgt. Jan Pietrzak and his wife Quiana Jenkins-Pietrzak in October 2008. Two of the men were sentenced to death and one was sentenced to life without parole.

Authorities say the couple was found bound and shot in the head in their home near Murrieta. Prosecutors say Pietrzak was assaulted and his wife sexually assaulted before they were killed.
