Guilty Verdict in Antler Lodge Shooting
The man accused of shooting a Binghamton man to death in a dispute at the Antler Lodge on Chenango Street in Binghamton is guilty on all counts.
A Broome County jury deliberated almost two days following a two-week trial for Joshua Taylor before finding him guilty of murder and weapons possession in the death of James High in July of 2015.
High and Taylor reportedly got into a dispute inside the social club July 24 over money. The argument moved to the street where High was shot. He died later at the hospital.
Police say they found the gun believed to be used in the shooting stashed under a staircase nearby and located Taylor about a month later.
Taylor faces 25 years to life in prison when he is sentenced in December.
He had previously rejected a plea deal to reduce the murder charge to manslaughter, which carried a sentence of 18 years to life in prison.
