Gribbins found guilty

Last week, six men and six women found Christopher Gribbins guilty of wanton murder in the death of David Litsey Jr.
The jurors started their deliberations around 5:30 p.m., Thursday, July 17, and their decision was announced shortly before 9 p.m.
“We appreciate the jury’s service and respect their decision,” Commonwealth’s Attorney Shelly Miller said after the verdict.
Gribbins’ attorneys, Scott Hayworth and James Lowery, both of Lexington, declined to comment.
