Indiana man convicted in 2013 deaths of his parents

Posted: Updated:

CROWN POINT, Ind. (AP) - A northwestern Indiana man has been convicted of murder in the 2013 bludgeoning and strangulation deaths of his parents.

Monday's jury verdict in the case against 38-year-old Thomas Snow followed a trial that started last month in Lake County Superior Court. Sentencing is Dec. 18.

The decomposing bodies of 66-year-old Joyce Snow and 68-year-old Clifford Snow were found in their Lowell-area home in October 2013. The bodies were wrapped in tarps and carpets.

Defense lawyer Arlington Foley told jurors that prosecutors lacked evidence, such as a weapon and specifics about the deaths.

Authorities believe the Snows were killed in September 2013. Thomas Snow fled from Indiana following the deaths and was arrested in western Minnesota following a high-speed chase after detectives tracked his parents' credit card and cellphone records.
