GRAMBLING, La. (KTVE/KTAL) – A former Grambling State University student has been convicted in the 2017 double homicide of another student and his friend.

According to Third Judicial District Attorney John Belton, 23-year-old Jaylin Wayne was found guilty Saturday on two counts of second-degree murder in the shooting deaths of Earl Andrews and Monquiarious Caldwell.

Wayne turned himself in after a warrant was issued for his arrest.
