A jury returned a guilty verdict in the Oakwood Mall murder case. According to our partners at Nola.com | The Times-Picayune, the jury convicted Gary Francois of second-degree murder.

He was found guilty of killing James Vaughn near the Foot Locker store on Christmas Eve in 2014.

Francois' defense had argued he was not guilty by reason of insanity, but the jurors found Francois knew what he was doing when he shot Vaughn four times.
