Bell killed Charles S. Martin during a home invasion in the 900 block of Enright Avenue on April 23, 2011.

Bell was found guilty on all eight counts against him Tuesday, including aggravated murder, aggravated robbery and aggravated burglary.

Authorities said Bell had an accomplice in the shooting. Annishia Smith also faces murder charges, but has not yet faced a jury.
