(CENTREVILLE) – After 16 hours of deliberations, the jury in the Andy Brown murder trial came to a verdict Monday morning. ...... {LISTEN}.

The 37 year old Portage man had been arrested on charges of First Degree Premeditated Murder and Felony Firearms in the October 2, 2013 shooting death of David Locey, who was found in his office with three gunshot wounds to the head.

The motive for the shooting, as presented by St. Joseph County Prosecutor John McDonough was that Locey had recently been contacted by clients of Brown's over some missing money. One of those clients, VIP Auto Body in Coldwater, reportedly owed the IRS $238,000 that they believed Brown had been paying.

McDonough thanked the jurors for their work over the course of the trial, but was disappointed there was not a guilty verdict on the first degree murder charge. ...... {LISTEN}.

McDonough says he's also proud of the hard work Detective-Sergeant Lonnie Palmer and Detective Chad Spence, along with the St. Joseph County Major Crimes Task Force, put in tracking down leads and interviewing individuals in this case.

Brown is due back in court August 29 for sentencing.
