UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (WUSA) - John Haston was found guilty by a jury on Monday for the 2011 robbery and murder of a local business owner.
Haston, of Clinton, Md., was found guilty of first-degree murder, first degree burglary, conspiracy to commit first degree burglary, robbery with a dangerous weapon, conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon, and use of a handgun in the commission of a crime of violence.
Haston faces life in prison plus 60 years for his role in the murder of David Williams.
Prosecutors say a second man, Craig Brooks, staked out the home a day before the murder, pretending to be a Pepco employee.
Brooks has already pleaded guilty.
On July 12, 2011, Brooks, came to Williams' home and announced himself as a Pepco employee. Brooks indicated he was there to deal with an issue, and Wiliams led Brooks all over his home talking about different electrical issues.
Haston and Brooks returned to Williams' home the following day. They robbed and killed Williams and stole approximately $1,200 in cash, a laptop, camera, jewelry and other electronic equipment.
Brooks received a life sentence with all but 50 years suspended and five years of supervised probation.
Haston will be sentenced on July 20.
