VANCOUVER: A B.C. Supreme Court judge has found Matthew Johnston and Cody Haevischer guilty of conspiracy to commit murder in connection with the deaths of six men inside a Surrey, B.C., highrise.

Justice Catherine Wedge is still reading a summary of her 200-page judgment and hasn’t yet revealed her decision on six counts of first-degree murder.

The trial heard that on Oct. 19, 2007, Haevischer, Johnston and a man who can only be identified as Person X carried out the execution-style killings of Corey Lal, his brother Michael, Eddie Narong and Ryan Bartolomeo.

Ed Schellenberg, a fireplace serviceman, and 22-year-old Chris Mohan, were innocent bystanders caught up in the gang hit.
