Updated: (at 6:58pm, August 19th, 2014)

Woodbury County jury has found Juan Nino Estrada guilty of two counts of first-degree murder in connection with an incident in a home on Sioux City's west side, last November.

The jury also found Estrada guilty of one count of attempted murder, and a count of willful injury. Estrada was found guilty of all four counts he faced. The jury has been released.

Previous story:

A jury is deciding the fate of a Sioux City man who's been charged with double murder and attempted murder.

Juan Nino Estrada is accused of killing Michael Delgado and Yolanda Valdez last November.

He's also accused of attempting to kill Luis Sanchez, the owner of the home where the crime occurred on West 27th Street in Sioux City.

Tuesday, the prosecution and defense gave their closing arguments.

Assistant Woodbury County Attorney Terry Ganzel reminded the jury that no one in nine days of testimony said anything about Estrada acting in self defense, and said he acted with malice when killing two and injuring another.

Public Defender Mike Williams said he challenged the jury to come up with a single consistent story from testimony.

He also said that the shooting occurred because Michael Delgado walked into the attic with a gun drawn, and it didn't start because of Estrada initially taking out his weapon.

KTIV's Kayah Gausman is in the court room and will have the verdict for us as soon as it comes down.
