Russellville Man Guilty of Murder

A Russellville man who was facing the death penalty is found guilty of murder.

A Logan County jury returned the verdict against Robert Yell last night.

Yell was charged with murder after a 2004 fire killed his two-year-old son, Cameron Yell, and injured his one-year-old daughter, Sara Lynn Yell.

Police discovered the fire at Yell's mobile home after a domestic violence call from the children's mother.

Yell was charged with drunk and disorderly conduct on the scene and later charged with murder.

Sentencing is set for March 23 in Logan Circuit Court.
