RALEIGH, N.C. -
Jahaad Marshall, 27, was found guilty of all 22 counts Friday in a case involving an Oakwood home invasion in Raleigh.
He was charged with one count each of first-degree burglary, attempted murder, attempted first-degree rape and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, as well as two counts of first-degree kidnapping.
Jahaad Marshall was sentenced to at least 263 years in prison.
Police say Jahaad Marshall and his brother, Shabar Marshall, broke into the home of Jason Beyer and his wife around 3:30 a.m. on Jan. 7, 2013, in Raleigh's historic Oakwood neighborhood.
During the course of the robbery, Beyer was shot in that back when he tried to confront the men, who were sexually assaulting his wife.
Authorities say the female victim escaped the suspects and ran to a neighbor's house, where police were called to the home.
As a result of the shooting, Beyer was left paralyzed.
The brothers had originally been tried together, but a judge granted a motion for mistrial after Jahaad Marshall's attorney, Deonte Thomas, said he wanted the brothers tried separately because Shabar Marshall pleaded guilty to a number of the charges.
Shabar Marshall is scheduled to be sentenced Monday. Shabar had been a student at Cary High School until December 2012.
