AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW) -- After deliberating for almost two hours, the jury has come back with a guilty verdict on all counts for the 19-year-old involved in a 2010 crime spree.

Hector Torres, who was convicted for his role in the murder of 56-year-old Carl Bush, was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole on the two murder counts. He will serve five life sentences for the remaining counts, including kidnapping and rape, which comes to more than 100 years consecutively.

Torres' accomplices, Hamlet Perdomo and Michael Rewis, are currently in jail awaiting their trials.

Deputies say the trio went on a crime spree involving multiple victims in September 2010. It started with a shooting incident on Telfair Street, then the murder of Bush on Reynolds Street. From there, the three men allegedly robbed two people at gunpoint on Tubman Home Road and then a man and his girlfriend on Fenwick Street. Investigators say they then abducted and sexually assaulted the woman.
