      Toledo teen found guilty of 2 separate but related murders

      CJ Bell, Gibson's longtime girlfriend, was killed when she tried to break up with Gibson.

      A Lucas County Grand jury found a Toledo teen guilty of 2 separate but related murders, both committed in 2012, on Thursday.

      According to the Toledo Blade, Traquawn Gibson was also found guilty on counts of felonious assault, aggravated robbery and faces up to life in prison when he's sentenced on Monday.

      Gibson killed his victims within about a month of each other in 2012.

      This first victim, Deonta Allen, was shot to death during a robbery attempt along Fernwood Avenue in October.

      Allen was with a friend, at the time of the shooting, who was also injured in the shooting but survived.

      About a month later, Gibson killed his longtime girlfriend CJ Bell when she tried to break to with him.

      Prosecutors argued that Gibson wanted to silence Bell because she knew about his involvement in Allen's murder.
