Man Faces Death Penalty For Killing Meals On Wheels Worker, Client

A Forsyth County jury has found a man guilty of all charges in the killing of a Meals on Wheels volunteer and one of her clients.

WXII-TV reports that Timothy Hartford Jr. was convicted Wednesday after a trial that lasted just over two weeks.

Authorities say Hartford killed 77-year-old Anne Magness and one of her clients, 64-year-old Robert Denning. Hartford was also convicted of robbery and trying to kill Magness' husband during the April 2008 incident.

Prosecutors say they'll seek the death penalty for Hartford and his then-girlfriend, Ashley Kristine Smith. Smith's trial has not started.

Authorities say Hartford and Smith were robbing Denning at his home when Magness and her husband arrived with Denning's lunch.
