ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) -- A jury has convicted an Arizona inmate of capital murder in the killings of an Oklahoma couple who crossed paths with him and two other fugitives on a New Mexico highway.
The verdict was reached Monday after the monthlong trial of John McCluskey.
He also was found guilty of carjacking and other charges in the August 2010 deaths of Gary and Linda Haas of Tecumseh, Okla.
McCluskey could be sentenced to life in prison or the death penalty.
The charred remains of the retired couple were found among the wreckage of their burned-out travel trailer on a remote ranch in eastern New Mexico.
The Haases were killed three days after McCluskey and two other inmates escaped from a prison near Kingman, Ariz. Witnesses testified the couple was targeted for their truck and travel trailer.
