Friday, January 22, 2010
GRANGEVILLE, Idaho (AP) -- A northern Idaho jury found Anthony D. Cobbs guilty of aiding and abetting a burglary that led to the fatal shooting of a 21-year-old last April.
Cobbs faces up to 10 years in prison after Thursday's verdict.
He is one of two men accused in the April 24, 2009 break-in at the Stites Grocery Store. During the break-in, Gabriel D. Pena Warden was shot and killed by a man who was sleeping inside the business.
Warden was a member of the Nez Perce Tribe, meaning the crime was being investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Cobbs is not a tribal member.
His sentencing has been scheduled for April 1.
