VANCOUVER, Wash. -- A man who attacked his girlfriend and best friend with a hammer when he found them in bed together has been convicted in Vancouver of attempted murder.
The Columbian reports a Clark County jury returned the guilty verdict Friday against 31-year-old Marcus Morrison of Battle Ground.
Prosecutors say Morrison beat them both in their heads with a hammer when he found them sleeping last November at his friend's Vancouver home.
The defense lawyer said Morrison acted in passion and didn't intend to kill.
