      Verdict reached in Thomas Murdock Trial

      A jury in Munising Friday has reached a verdict in the Thomas Murdock trial, the man accused of running over his girlfriend, Lisa Hardwick, in June of 2011.

      Murdock was found not guilty of involuntary manslaughter, but he was found guilty on the four remaining charges.

      He was found guilty of operating while intoxicated causing death, operating while intoxicated third offense, driving on a suspended license, and possession of marijuana.

      The verdict was reached Friday night after more than four hours of deliberations.

      Murdock's bond was revoked and he was sent directly to the Alger County Jail.

      Operating while intoxicated causing death carries a possible sentence of up to 15 years in prison.

      A sentencing has not been set.
