Lashon T. Hollman

Hollman was standing trial on charges that he broke into the apartment of his neighbor, Cassandra Nelson, on February 1, 2012 - and proceeded to drop a television set on her head before stabbing her 54 times.

After a week and a half of testimony, the jury convicted Hollman on counts of premeditated murder, torture, and carrying a dangerous weapon with unlawful intent.

Hollman - who initially denied all involvement in the incident -  lowered his head and cried when the jury's verdict was read.

The first-degree murder and felony murder charges carry with them mandatory penalties of life in prison without the possibility of parole. He will be sentenced on May 9.
