Update: Guilty verdict handed down in Onslow County double murder trial

Posted: Updated:
JACKSONVILLE, N.C. -

An Onslow County man could serve 12 to 19 years in prison.

That's after a jury found 28-year-old Chris Cash guilty on all counts in a double murder trial.

Cash was found guilty on 2 counts of involuntary manslaughter, 2 counts of death by motor vehicle, and 2 counts of felonious hit and run causing injury.

He was also found guilty of DWI, driving while license revoked, reckless driving to endanger and causing serious injury by motor vehicle.

State troopers say Cash was intoxicated and speeding when he crashed his car on Pony Farm Road outside of Jacksonville last January.

Two passengers died in the accident after being thrown from the car during the crash.

During a short break in the deliberation, the jury watched surveillance video from a Wilco Hess gas station that shows Cash buying beer shortly before the accident.

They also watched video of a witness interview with the Onslow County Sheriff Department. The witness picked Cash out of a line up and identified him as the driver of the car.

Cash's attorney, Stuart Popkin says they plan to file an appeal.
