A man has been found guilty of murder after shooting two men in an industrial estate – after reportedly owing them £200,000.
Will Henry, 31, and Brian McIntosh, 29, were found with fatal injuries after police were called to a car park at the Albion Works in Dudley on September 30 last year.
Officers found their bodies inside a Range Rover at about 3.30pm that afternoon.
Jonathan Houseman, 33, was found guilty of two counts of murder this afternoon, while Richard Avery, 33, was found not guilty of murder by the jury at Birmingham Crown Court.
Avery was convicted of perverting the course of justice after he assisted Houseman in disposing items of clothing or other items connected to the two men's death.
It is understood Houseman owed the victims £200,000, which the prosecution said was his motive to kill them.
CCTV footage showed Houseman entering the Range Rover before smoke can be seen leaving the windows as the two men were shot.
But Houseman claimed that an unknown fourth man sat in the back of the car and carried out the shootings.

The trial of Houseman, formerly of Quarry Park Road, Stourbridge; Avery, of no fixed address, and Scott, of Lower Valley Road, Brierley Hill, was heard by Mr Justice Martin Spencer, and began on June 10. The jury deliberated for two days before reaching a verdict.
