CLARKSVILLE (AP) - A jury has convicted two Tennessee men charged with killing a Fort Campbell solder who was giving them a ride home.

The Leaf-Chronicle reports that jurors in Montgomery County returned Thursday with the verdict against Giovanne Treymane Johnson, 19, and Rakeem Rashan Jones, 18.

They were convicted of second-degree murder, felony murder and especially aggravated robbery in the death of Spc. Taylor Hotzoglou, 22.

The soldier was shot multiple times on April 28 in Clarksville, Tenn., after giving the two teenagers a ride. He was found by a passer-by dead in his car.

The newspaper reports the teens will be sentenced on Nov. 26.
