On Tuesday, a jury found William Murray guilty with no mercy in connection to the 2012 beating death of a West Union man.

Murray was found guilty of killing Thomas Blankenship, 20, with a wrench in 2012 and burying his body in Barbour County. Prosecutors said Clayton Collins was also involved in Blankenship's death.

Blankenship's body was found in Arden in January of 2012.

Murray's trial lasted five days.

The Harrison County Prosecuting Attorney's office said Clayton Collins is scheduled to enter a plea in the near future.
