3 Guilty in Piazza at Schmidts Murders

Three men have been found guilty of the murders of Rian Thal and Timothy Gilmore

Three men were found guilty Thursday of second-degree murder in the 2009 killings of Rian Thal and Timothy Gilmore in the Piazza at Schmidts trendy apartment complex.

The guilty verdicts for Will "Pooh" Hook, 43, also known as Keith Epps, Antonio Wright, 30, and Edward Daniels, 44, means that they could be sentenced to life in prison without parole for killing Thal and Gilmore while trying to rob the upscale dealers of their cocaine supply.

The Northern Liberties murders happened in June of 2009 when Thal and Gilmore returned to the upscale apartment building. The suspects were caught on surveillance video following the two into the building.

Investigators later found cocaine and more than $100,000 in Thal's apartment.

Four others charged in the case have pleaded guilty.
