CLEVELAND -- Jurors have reached a verdict in the trial of Andrey Bridges, 36, of Parma, according to the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor's office.

They found Bridges guilty of murder, felonious assault, kidnapping, tampering with evidence and gross abuse of a corpse.

Jurors began deliberating Thursday afternoon.

Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court Judge Hollie L. Gallagher set a sentencing hearing for noon on Nov. 13.

On Jan. 5, Bridges allegedly stabbed 20-year-old transgender, Carl Acoff, Jr., a.k.a. Cemia Dove, multiple times, resulting in the victim's death.
