John Jason McLaughlin has been found guilty in the shooting deaths of Aaron Rollins and Seth Bartell, but it’s not over yet. According to Minnesota law, the second phase of the trial will determine whether or not McLaughlin was mentally ill at the time of the shootings. If he is found mentally ill he could be found not guilty by reason of insanity but could be committed to the state mental hospital. If he is found to be competent then he’s looking at life in prison without the possibility for parole. Minnesota does not have the death penalty.
