Man who held gun to boy's head convicted

MARRERO, La. (AP) - A jury has convicted a man of holding up a Marrero barber shop by putting a gun to the head of a 9-year-old boy in the barber's chair.

The Times-Picayune reports that a jury on Friday convicted 23-year-old LilRonald Williams, of Marrero, on two counts of armed robbery. Each count up to 99 years in prison. Sentencing will be July 19.

Prosecutors said Williams and 22-year-old Patrick Blair of Marrero held up the shop just before closing on June 12, 2009. They said Blair pistol-whipped a customer.

Blair pleaded guilty May 21 to two counts of armed robbery and one of aggravated battery. He is serving a 10-year prison sentence.
