CORBIN, Ky. (AP) — A jury has convicted a Kentucky man of killing three people and an unborn child.

Jurors in Whitley County deliberated for about four hours Thursday before delivering the verdict for Paul Brock, 41, of Corbin in the 2018 slayings of Tiffany Myers, 33, who was pregnant; her husband, Aaron “Biggs” Byers, 45; and her grandmother, Mary Jackson, 74, the Corbin Times-Tribune reported. He was convicted of three counts of murder, fetal homicide and tampering with evidence, the newspaper reported.

Prosecutors said during the trial that Brock killed all three, while the defense argued that Byers killed the two women and Brock killed Byers in self-defense.

The bodies of Jackson and Myers were found at their residence on Feb. 17, 2018 and Byers’ body was found two days later in a shallow grave in a wooded area owned by Brock.

A sentencing hearing is scheduled for Tuesday.
