The jury has reached a verdict Thursday in the trial of Toby Stangel who was charged with eight counts of murder and attempted murder in connection with a shooting spree in Honolulu nearly two years ago.

He was found guilty of second-degree murder and faces life in prison with the possibility of parole.

Stangel was also found guilty of second-degree attempted murder and second-degree reckless endangerment.

Tammy Nguyen, a mother of 10, was killed in the shooting in the Kapahulu area.  The shooting ended on the H-1 Freeway in Pearl City.

The jury rested their cases on Tuesday and the jury has been in deliberation since then.

Stangel was also charged with several counts of firearms and drug charges.

Stangel's defense attorney says his client didn't have the "state of mind" required to convict him.
