POCAHONTAS, AR - A Randolph County Circuit Court jury needed only 36 minutes of deliberations this morning before returning to the courtroom with guilty verdicts against 49-year-old Billy Dale Green of Warm Springs.  Green was charged with four counts of capital murder and one count of kidnapping, and the jury of eight women and four men returned guilty verdicts on all counts.  The jury began deliberations Thursday afternoon at 3 p.m., before being dismissed for the day at 5, by Circuit Judge Harold Erwin.

Green is accused in the July 1998 deaths of 30-year-old Carl Allen Elliott, his wife and two children. 

The sentencing phase of the trial is now underway.  Prosecutors are seeking the dealth penalty for Green.  Jurors spent most today deciding the sentencing issues, before being dismissed late this afternoon with instructions to return to the courthouse Monday.
