LAKE COUNTY, OH (WOIO) -

A jury found Zach Weimer guilty for the murder of his elderly neighbor.

Zach and his mother, Danna, were convicted of murdering 77-year-old Eleanor Robertson.

Danna will be sentenced December 12, and Zach will be sentenced on December 17.

Roberton was found bludgeoned and stabbed 94 times inside her Canterbury Drive home in Madison Township this past June.

Her house was ransacked of jewelry and other valuables which were used to buy drugs. The house was also filled with candles in an effort to burn the property and cover the crime, but all the candles went out.
