Rashad Owens was found guilty of capital murder today for the killing of four people in Austin in the deadly 2014 SXSW crash.

Owens killed four people, including a Fort Worth teen, when he accelerated through a festival crowd last year. Authorities say Owens was intoxicated at the time of the incident.

He faces a mandatory life sentence of life in prison with no parole.

The Austin American Statesman has been live tweeting and live streaming the trial, which began on Monday.
