(Ottumwa)— It took a Wapello County District court jury about one hour of deliberations to convict 26 year old Bruce Pollard guilty of 1st degree murder and 1st degree burglary.
Pollard was arrested on the charges in March of last year in connection with the death of Kenneth McDaniel manager of the Cinema X theater in downtown Ottumwa.
Deliberations by the jury began Tuesday after prosecution and defense attorneys presented closing arguments in the trial.
Pollard could get up to life in prison on the 1st degree murder change and 25 years in prison on the burglary charge. .
