A Livingston County jury found Clifford Brewer, 55 of Cullom, guilty on six counts of First Degree Murder Tuesday afternoon.  

Brewer shot and killed his wife, 48-year-old Shirley Brewer, son, 27-year-old Christian Brewer, and his neighbor, 51-year-old Norman Walker who happened to be in his house at the time of the killings.
