Man found guilty in Parma gas station killing

3/16/2017

A jury has found a 21-year-old Parma man guilty of aggravated murder and more than a dozen other charges in the November 2015 killing of a gas station owner during a botched robbery.

Logan Sinclair now faces life in prison after the jury returned its verdict late Thursday, finding him guilty of aggravated murder, murder, felonious assault, aggravated robbery, kidnapping and other charges in the shooting of Robert Sposit.

Four jurors wiped away tears as Judge Brian J. Corrigan read the guilty verdicts, which came about a day after jurors began deliberations.

Jurors' "heated discussions" could be heard in the courtroom on Thursday afternoon before the verdict was reached, Corrigan said. Several jurors were visibly shaken and using tissues to wipe their eyes and noses.

Sinclair remained emotionless throughout the hearing. He is scheduled to be sentenced April 20.
