NIAGARA FALLS, ONT. - The families of Cassey Cichocki and Diane Dimitri gasped then broke into applause after a jury said Wednesday afternoon they had found Michael Durant guilty of two counts of first-degree murder.

The six-man, six-woman jury deliberated for almost 65 hours over seven days before reaching the verdict.

Durant, dressed in a wrinkled green dress shirt and black dress pants, showed no emotion as the verdict was read.
