Leon Davis found guilty of murdering two gas station clerks in 2007

BARTOW, Fla. - A Polk County judge found Leon Davis guilty on two counts of murder Thursday afternoon, just hours after his trial concluded.

Davis, who is already on death row for another murder, is accused of shooting two clerks to death outside a Lake Alfred BP gas station in December of 2007.
Throughout the trial, the court heard hours of testimony and viewed dozens of exhibits including a unique set of tires that matched the track at the murder scene.  The state says the tires came off of Davis' car.
Since Davis waived his right to a jury trial, Judge Donald Jacobsen acted as the judge and jury.
Davis was sentenced to death in 2011 for the brutal murders of two Lake Wales women and an unborn child. A sentencing date for this trial has not been set.
