Steven Tyler Logan guilty of capital murder

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - It took a Lubbock County jury four hours to find Steven Tyler Logan, 22 guilty of capital murder for the deaths of his mother Vicki Logan, 52 and his grandmother Wanda Faye Turner, 73 back in January of 2006.  The trial wrapped up around 8:30 p.m. Thursday.  Logan left the courtroom, with what appeared to be, tears in his eyes. The guilty verdict comes with an automatic life sentence without parole.

Both Lubbock County District Attorney Matt Powell and Roylene Bynum, Turner's daughter, and Vicki Logan's sister, tell NewsChannel 11 they're not celebrating, but they both say justice had to be served.  "It's a verdict, justice has been served, but this is a no win situation for my family," Bynum said. 

"We've told that jury it's a horrible thing to come to a conclusion in your mind that somebody has the ability to do what this man did to his grandmother and his mother, but we're glad it's done. It's been the culmination of a lot of work by a lot of people," Powell said. 

"My mother and my sister were loved very much, and I'm really sorry for Tyler. I'm just sorry for the whole incident, but justice had to be served," Bynum said. 

Bynum thanked the district attorney's office, victim advocates and Lubbock Police investigators for their time and concern in this situation. She says more policemen worked on this case than the city will ever know.

Logan has 30-days to file for appeal. His attorney suggested they may do that, but did not say for certain.
