UPPER MARLBORO, Md. — After a five-day trial and eight hours of deliberation, a jury in Prince George's County found 32-year-old Kyeem King guilty of multiple offenses including two counts of second degree murder.

King is facing a maximum sentence of 128 years in prison and is scheduled to be sentenced on September 7, 2022.

During the early morning hours of June 1, 2019, two Prince George's County police officers found two victims suffering from gunshot wounds in the front seats of a gray Honda Accord.

Davion Brandon, 26, and Antonio Taitano-Walker, 28, were both taken to the hospital after first aid was deemed unsuccessful.
