WILKES-BARRES, Pa. — Harlow Cuadra — an escort, adult producer and website entrepreneur — has been found guilty of first-degree homicide in the murder of producer Bryan Kocis. The jury of eight men and four women deliberated for roughly three-and-a-half hours before reaching its unanimous decision.

He was additionally found guilty on charges of theft, robbery, arson and abuse of a corpse.

The penalty phase begins tomorrow when jurors will decide if Cuadra should receive the death penalty.

Cuadra, 27, was accused of murdering Cobra Video producer Bryan Kocis in January 2007 and setting fire to his Dallas Township, Pa., home. He and his former partner and onetime co-defendant, Joseph Kerekes, 34, were arrested in May 2007 and formally charged two months later.

Kerekes pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in early December 2008. He was sentenced to the mandatory life in prison without parole. The plea spared Kerekes from facing the death penalty.
