AKRON, Ohio (AP) - A 17-year-old Ohio boy has been convicted in a deadly Craigslist robbery scheme in Ohio.

A jury in Akron on Tuesday found Brogan Rafferty guilty of aggravated murder.

Three men were killed and a fourth survived the attacks, in which victims were lured with the promise of a job and were robbed.

Rafferty was suspected of helping Richard Beasley, of Akron, lure the victims with bogus Craigslist job offers. The teen testified that he went along with the scheme only because he feared Beasley would kill him.

Rafferty was tried as an adult but faces a maximum potential sentence of life in prison because he's a juvenile.
