Guilty Verdict In Red Wings Restaurant Stabbing

By  | 

An 18-year-old is found guilty of fatally stabbing two former co-workers at a restaurant owned by Detroit Red Wings defenseman Chris Chelios.

A Wayne County jury deliberated about three hours today before finding Justin Blackshere guilty of first-degree murder. He faces mandatory life imprisonment when he's sentenced next month.

Blackshere was charged in the January 2nd deaths of Cheli's Chili Bar manager Megan Soroka and chef Mark Barnard.

The teen had been fired in November from his job as a busboy, and told police he had gone to the restaurant to get his job back.

Chelios and others identified Blackshear as the person shown on restaurant surveillance cameras on the morning of the killings.
