James Bannister, who was accused in the 2011 Marion County slayings of four people — two women and two children — was found guilty on all counts by a jury Wednesday.

Bannister's charges included four counts of first degree murder and arson.

Investigators said Jocalyn Gray; her mother, Bridget; and two children who were living with Bridget — Cor-Darrian and Cor-Derica Hill — were shot and their bodies were found in Bridget's burning home.

"I'm in the funeral business and I see this all the time but when it happened to you I had to do everything," said F.L. Brown, Bridget's brother.

Prosecutors have said Bannister admitted he was high on drugs at the time of the killings. But Bannister's attorneys say he never admitted to murder.

"Every time he opens his eyes, closes his eyes, he need to see my sister and my niece," Brown said.

Bannister could face the death penalty.​
