Guilty verdict in 2002 murder of Johnsberg teen

 

WOODSTOCK (AP) — A McHenry County jury convicted a 29-year-old of first-degree murder for decade-old death of a Johnsberg teenager.

Mario Casciaro was convicted Tuesday after a four-day retrial for the 2002 death of 17-year-old Brian Carrick. He faces 20-to-60 years in prison when he's sentenced later this year.

Carrick disappeared from his job at Val's Foods in late 2002. Authorities never found a body, but police said they discovered traces of his blood inside the store.

It was the second time Casciaro was tried for Carrick's murder. A judge declared a mistrial in the case after a jury deadlocked more than a year ago.

Casciaro's attorney says he'll appeal.
