CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -
The verdict was a guilty one, in the murder trial Richard Beasley. A day after getting the case, Beasley was convicted of luring men to a remote farm in Noble County through a Craigslist ad that promised work and murdering them.
"Count one indictment for aggravated murder this is regarding Ralph Gieger, with prior calculation and design, guilty beyond a reasonable doubt," said Judge Lynn Callahan.
It only took the jury about a day to deliberate.
Beasley listened to the verdict and hung his head from his wheelchair for most of the reading.
He was found guilty on all the major counts including three counts of aggravated murder for the deaths of Ralph Geiger, Timothy Kern and David Pauley. All of who answered Craigslists ads for jobs only to be shot and put in shallow graves in Noble County.
After the verdict Bealsey's own mother was visibly shaken.
"Right at this moment I'm in great deal of pain," said Carol Beasley.
