PORTLAND (AP) — A Multnomah County Circuit Court jury in Portland has convicted a former oxycodone dealer of two counts of aggravated murder in the 2008 deaths of a man and a woman in their suburban Gresham townhouse.

The Oregonian says the jury will reconvene over the next two or three days to decide whether the 37-year-old should get the death penalty for the deaths of Melinda Beth Kotkins and Anthony Patrick Cooper.
