UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (WUSA9) -- A Maryland man was found guilty Tuesday of murder in a 2012 shooting death.
Officials say Joshua Benton was found guilty of first degree murder, conspiracy to commit murder and use of a handgun for the 2012 murder of Sharod James.
Benton had previously stood trial in 2011 along with four others for a series of drive-by shootings in D.C.'s Trinidad neighborhood in 2008 which claimed the life of 13-year-old Alonzo Robinson, according to officials. A jury found Joshua Benton, his twin brother Christian and a third man not guilty.
Benton will be sentenced for James' murder on June 6. The state will be asking for double life plus 20 years, the maximum penalty allowed.
