He is scheduled to be sentenced Oct. 24.

Jenkins’ trial started Monday with closing arguments taking place Friday morning, according to a court official.

The jury reached a verdict later on Friday.

On Nov. 12, 2018, a man and a woman were found shot inside a Riverside Drive apartment.

Jenkins was at the apartment with the woman when her boyfriend showed up to pick up some shoes, police said.

The woman had Jenkins hide in a closet when she answered the door, according to court documents.

“[The man] went straight to the bedroom,” investigators wrote in an affidavit filed in Dayton Municipal Court. “When he opened the door, Jenkins shot him multiple times and then shot [the woman] when she would not stop screaming.”

Jenkins pleaded not guilty to charges.
