A jury has found a second man guilty in the 2009 deaths of three Brazilian family members from Omaha
Jose Oliveira-Coutinho was convicted Friday of three counts of first-degree murder and one count of theft. He had been charged in the deaths of Vanderlei, Jacqueline and Christopher Szczepanik.
Oliveira-Coutinho is one of three accused in the killings.
Tatiane Klein, the eldest daughter of the Szczepaniks, cried out in joy as the verdict was read. Klein says she plans to stay in the U.S. until the third man accused in the case, Elias Lourenco-Batista, is extradited from Brazil.
Another defendant, Valdeir Goncalves-Santos, pleaded guilty to second-degree murder last year in exchange for his testimony against Oliveira-Coutinho and Lourenco-Batista.
Prosecutors say the three men worked for the Szczepaniks.
