On the other charges — having weapons under disability and felonious assault — Grevious was found not guilty. Those charges were related to gun violence that killed his relative during the early morning hours of July 24, 2016 at a Hamilton bar.

Attorneys will be back tomorrow afternoon to begin the sentencing face of the trial when the jury will decide Grevious’ sentence.
