BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - A man facing murder charges in Baton Rouge state court has been found guilty in federal court on charges that he illegally possessed drugs and pistols in a home that also contained $19,000 in cash.
The Advocate reports Reginald G. Youngblood remains in custody after the verdict on Wednesday. A federal judge immediately ordered a pre-sentence investigation of Youngblood, who has a prior state felony conviction for possession of cocaine.
Youngblood's federal conviction is for possession with intent to distribute 79 hydrocodone pills and 200 grams of marijuana. Jurors also convicted him for possession of firearms in connection with a drug crime and possession of firearms by a convicted felon.
Youngblood is charged in state court with first-degree murder in 2010 deaths of Charles Matthews and Darryl Milton.
