Peter Capote has been found guilty of capital murder in Colbert County. A jury also found Capote guilty first degree assault, and shooting firearm into an automobile.

His co- defendant, Benjamin Young, was found guilty and sentenced to death earlier this year.

The Colbert County District Attorney's Office is seeking the death penalty for Capote.
