Jackson Murderer Convicted 01 Nov 11

A Jackson man has been found guilty of murdering his brother following a jury trial in Blue Earth County Court. 39-year-old Tyron Louis Collins was convicted of 2 counts of 2nd-degree murder in court Friday, and was found not guilty of the more serious charge of 1st-degree murder. Collins was arrested in June of 2010 after fatally stabbing his brother, Kenneth Collins Jr at the Colonial Manor Nursing Home in Lakefield where the victim worked. The trial was moved to Blue Earth County in order to seat an impartial jury. A sentencing hearing will now be scheduled in Jackson County.
