Decatur, Georgia (CNN)-- A former Georgia sheriff's deputy was found guilty Wednesday of murder in the shooting deaths of his wife and a day laborer.

A Dekalb County jury deliberated for about 22 hours before convicting Derrick Yancey, 49, of two counts of malice murder and two counts of possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime in the June 9, 2008, killings of Linda Yancey, 44, and Marcial Cax-Puluc, 23.

Yancey was apprehended on Sept. 21, 2009, in Punta Gorda, Belize, where he had fled after escaping house arrest.
