After only two hours of deliberations, jurors found Eugene Riley, 20, guilty in the murder of Fenger High School honor student Derrion Albert.

Riley is the fourth suspect to be convicted in the death. Albert was beaten to death in September 2009. The videotaped attacked garnered national attention.

Riley struck Albert with a wooden board during the attack. He had argued that he was only trying to protect his younger brother.

Three others have been found guilty in the case: Silvonus Shannon, who received 32 years in prison for murder; Eric Carson, 18, who received 26 years in prison after pleading guilty; and a juvenile who was found delinquent.

A fifth suspect- Lapoleon Colbert- has not been tried.
