A jury in Washington County has found Matthew Slocum guilty of all charged in his re-trial.

Slocum is charged in the 2011 shotgun killings of his mother, Lisa Coon Harrington; his stepfather, Dan Harrington and his stepbrother, Joshua O'Brien. Prosecutors also say that Slocum set his White Creek home on fire in an effort to cover-up the murders.

Slocum was found guilty by a jury in the first trial that took place in 2012, but that conviction was tossed by an Appeals Court that ruled that police obtained a confession after he asked for an attorney.

Tuesday a jury found Slocum guilty once more of all seven charges including murder, arson and possession of a weapon.
