LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A man was found guilty of double murder Tuesday in Salem, Indiana.

A jury convicted Joseph Hambel of killing Valerie Dicus and Joseph Hobson in August of 2016.

Police said a day before the crime, Hambel told officers he was concerned about a drug deal in the home where his 15-year-old nephew lived. After the crime, police said Hambel claimed he'd "just taken care of one of Washington County's biggest drug problems."

There's no word on when he will be sentenced.
