A jury has convicted a Bozeman man of trying to kill his mother and stepfather a year ago in Livingston.
The jury deliberated five hours Thursday before finding 39-year-old Jeremy Braulick guilty of two counts of attempted deliberate homicide for stabbing 57-year-old Cheryl Kautzman and 61-year-old Scott Kautzman.
The Livingston Enterprise reports the couple cried and hugged after hearing the verdict.
Prosecutors say Braulick stabbed them after becoming enraged during a family dinner on Dec. 27, 2011. Court records say Braulick "started going ballistic" after seeing a television commercial about a police officer killed by a drunken driver.
Braulick says he acted in self-defense.
He faces 12 years to life in prison when he is sentenced on Jan. 4.
