Oklahoman convicted in fatal burning of mother, grandmother

TULSA, Okla. (AP) – An Oklahoma man has been convicted of murder and arson in the burning deaths of his mother and grandmother.

Federal prosecutors say 34-year-old Joseph Allen Hernandez of Marble City was found guilty Friday by a jury in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Oklahoma in Tulsa.

Acting U.S. Attorney Christopher Wilson says Hernandez faces life in prison when sentenced following completion of a pre-sentence report. Prosecutors say Hernandez doused his mother,Audrey Hernandez, and his grandmother, Francis Wright, with gasoline in June 2019 then set them on fire.
