Byron Smith was charged and convicted of fatally shooting two teens as they broke into his Minnesota home on Thanksgiving Day 2012. Guns.com recently reported that after only three hours of deliberation, the jury found Smith guilty of two counts of first-degree murder and two counts of second-degree murder. It was said the audio and visual evidence was compelling, and aided in the quick decision. Now, some of the photos that were used during the murder trial have been released to the public.
