The trial for Andre Ellis is over after three days of emotional testimony, followed by closing arguments today.

The jury only deliberated two and a half hours before returning a guilty verdict on all charges – rape first-degree, rape first-degree and burglary second-degree.

Ellis had nothing to say to media as Pike County deputies escorted him back to the Pike County Jail Friday afternoon.

Assistant District Attorney Scherryl Harrison said the State will be asking for life without parole.
