A jury has returned a guilty verdict in the trial of an Early, Iowa man accused of killing his mother and kidnapping another woman.
The Webster County jury convicted 21-year-old Kirk Levin of first-degree murder in the death of his mother, Marilyn Schmitt.
He also was found guilty of third-degree kidnapping in the case of Jessica Vega, a woman he met online.
Jurors deliberated for about two hours. Sentencing is scheduled for July.
