UPDATE @ 9:38 p.m. (Sept. 13): Troy McRae Jr. will remain in the Shelby County Jail until his sentencing on one count of aggravated murder in the slaying of a Sidney man in his apartment this spring.
A county Common Pleas jury of six men and six women deliberated about two hours in returning the guilty verdict in a case that did not include the death penalty.
Trial started Monday in the courtroom of Judge James Stevenson.
McRae, 34, could be sentenced to life in prison without parole in the March 12 stabbing of Lance Johnson.
According to court records and evidence presented at trial, Johnson likely was stabbed multiple times during a robbery at his apartment on North Miami Avenue, which was ransacked.
There were signs of a struggle, according to a Sidney police incident report.

HUBER HEIGHTS — Executive Boulevard lanes in Huber Heights reopened after being closed for several hours following a gas leak Thursday morning.
Crews continued to make repairs to the leaking gas line that evacuated fifteen business along the road around 11 a.m., according to Huber Heights Fire Chief Mark Ashworth.
Ashworth said a construction crew working in the area struck a 6-inch gas main directly under Executive, which caused the gas to leak from underground.
Executive is one of the city’s most commercial areas and Ashworth said the leak would impact the businesses in the area.
Utility companies, including DP&L and Vectren, worked on scene to isolate their utilities as well.
