A jury has found a Jersey City man guilty on all counts in the murder of a Jersey City couple killed on their way home from their engagement party.

The Jersey Journal reports that 22-year-old Shiquan Bellamy erupted in anger as a jury found him guilty on all 17 counts.

Bellamy was convicted of murder, carjacking and robbery, among other charges, in the 2010 botched carjacking and execution-style murders of 27-year-old Michael Muchiaki and his 25-year-old girlfriend, Nia Haqq. 

Prosecutors say the victims were each shot twice in the head outside their Jersey City home in April 2010, shortly after they had attended their engagement party.

Bellamy's cousin, Latonia Bellamy was sentenced to life plus 30 years in February for her role in the shooting.
