PERRY, FL (WTXL) - Garrett Arrowood has been found guilty of murdering his aunt, Taylor County teacher Shelly Strickland.

According to Arrowood's attorney Baya Harrison, the six-person jury ruled Friday that he was guilty of all charges, including first degree murder, armed burglary and dealing in stolen property.

The trial began Monday in Perry, where Arrowood was accused of murdering his aunt, 50-year-old Shelly Strickland. 

Strickland was found shot to death inside her car at her residence on Osteen Road in Perry on June 24, 2015.

Two other people, Manden Whiddon and his father Rodney Whiddon, were indicted in January on first degree murder charges for her death as well. The trial for the other two suspects has not started.

Sentencing is scheduled for Wednesday. As part of the deal to have a six-person jury, the death penalty is not an option.
