A jury in Tuscaloosa has found James Scott Largin guilty of killing his parents.

The Tuscaloosa County Circuit Court jury found Largin guilty of two counts of capital murder Wednesday after deliberating for more than three hours.

Jurors will reconvene Friday to recommend whether he should receive the death penalty or life in prison without parole. Circuit Judge John England could overrule the sentencing recommendation.

The 37-year-old Largin was accused of killing Jimmy and Peggy Largin in March 2007. Prosecutors said Largin shot his parents with a rifle, stole their money and a car and spent the next day smoking crack cocaine.
