CRYSTAL FALLS - David Anthony Levack was found guilty today of felony counts of open murder, felony murder, home invasion, and witness intimidation in the death of 81-year-old Joyce Johnson of Stambaugh Township.

Levack, 45, was accused of killing Johnson before she could testify against him in a stolen property trial on Sept. 27, 2011.

The jury was asked to render a guilty or not guilty verdict on four separate charges:
