May 16, 2014 5:34 PM

A Butte County Jury has found Donald Clark guilty of guilty of first degree murder for killing 15-year-old Roland Lowe, and 46-year-old Collen Lowe and second degree murder for killing 17-year-old Richard Jones.

Closing arguments were presented this morning and the jury returned the guilty verdict after just a few hours.

On the morning of June 13, 2013, Butte County Sheriffs located an Acura in flames on the Skyway near Hupp-Coutelanc Road north of Magalia. After extinguishing the flames officials found three bodies inside who were eventually identified as the three previously mentioned victims.

According to Butte County District Attorney Mike Ramsey, the 17-year-old victim apparently stayed at Clark’s residence during prior summers, but had a falling out with the 72-year-old after Clark accused him of stealing.
