Man convicted in 1994 double-slaying in Denver

DENVER (AP) - A man has been found guilty in a 1994 double-slaying in Denver that was re-opened by the police cold-case unit.

Forty-four-year-old Andre Jackson was convicted Friday of first-degree murder, attempted first-degree murder and sexual assault.

Prosecutors say three people were attacked and tortured and one was repeatedly sexually assaulted during a June 12, 1994, home invasion.

Two died and one survived. The survivor told police several intruders entered his home demanding money and drugs.

Thirty-nine-year-old Jackie McConnell pleaded guilty earlier to second-degree murder in the attack and will be sentenced in October.

Forty-three-year-old Samuel Sims is scheduled to go on trial in September on charges of first-degree murder, attempted first-degree murder and sexual assault.

Prosecutors say DNA evidence led to the arrests of the three suspects.
