    Wood, 24, of Geneva, Ala., was found guilty as charged Thursday of first-degree murder, burglary of a structure while armed with a firearm and robbery with a firearm. Assistant State Attorneys Larry Basford and Shala Jefcoat showed jurors during the weeklong trial that Wood and co-defendant Dillon Rafsky beat down, bound then executed Shores, 66, after he found them on his property the evening of April 19. Friday, Basford proved to the jury that the murder met three aggravating factors: it was done to avoid arrest; it was committed during a burglary or robbery; and was cold, calculated and premeditated.
