Indianapolis - After six hours of deliberations, a jury convicted Jeffrey Treadway of murder and robbery in the death of an Indianapolis dance instructor.

Treadway now faces a possible life sentence without parole, for attacking and killing 82-year-old Donald Carroll in 2005. Prosecutors say Treadway beat Carroll with a brick in his east side home.

They say he also stole money from the World War Two veteran and attacked his wife, who survived.

Jurors will hear evidence in the penalty phase of the trial Friday before recommending a sentence.
