Man Found Guilty Of Dollar General Murders

ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. -- On Friday, a jury found Roy Lee McDuffie guilty of killing two co-workers in 2002.

The crime happened at a Central Florida Dollar General store, but the trial moved to St. Augustine because of concerns about publicity.

Both victims, Janice Schneider and Dawniell "D.J." Beauregard, worked with McDuffie while he was in being trained to be a manger at the discount store.

Prosecutors said McDuffie killed the women so he could rob the store.

The trial in St. Augustine was McDuffie's second in the murder case. In November of 2007, McDuffie obtained a new trial from the Florida Supreme Court, which reversed his convictions and death sentence for killing two of the Deltona store's cashiers.

Friday's conviction means McDuffie will once again face the possibility of the death penalty.
