Accused deputy killer found guilty of murder, jury decides
Jurors deliberated about 30 minutes before finding Christopher Keith Calmer guilty of murder in the 2014 fatal shooting of Monroe County deputy Michael Norris.
Calmer, 49, who also was accused of wounding deputy Jeff Wilson, additionally was found guilty of two counts of aggravated assault on a peace officer, two counts of possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, and single counts of aggravated battery and criminal attempt to commit murder.
Calmer nodded his head up and down as the verdict for each charge was read aloud.
The same Upson County jurors who have listened to testimony during the more than week-long trial will decide whether to sentence Calmer to life, life without parole or to be executed.
