Man Found Not Guilty of Conspiring to Murder His Grandparents In Columbia Court

A man accused of conspiring to murder his grandparents is now found guilty on three of four charges.

20 year old Brian Kelley was guilty on three assault charges yesterday (Thursday) in a Boone County court, and was found not guilty on the conspiring to commit murder charge.

Prosecutors argued that Kelley asked for the help of 19 year old Jared Bears with plotting the murder and how to dispose of the bodies.

Bears also faces charges of the alleged plot, and has a trial scheduled in early January.
