Guilty

A man accused of killing two children on the Spirit Lake Indian Reservation in North Dakota has been found guilty.
 
     Twenty-year-old Valentino "Tino" Bagola was charged with murder for the May 2011 slayings of 9-year-old Destiny Jane Shaw-Dubois and her 6-year-old brother, Travis Lee DuBois Jr. in St. Michael.
 
     The jury of eight women and four men found Bagola guilty Monday.
 
     Authorities say Bagola stabbed the children to death after he sexually assaulted the girl, and that he did so because he was angry at their father but couldn't find him. Defense attorneys argued the victims' father was responsible.

     A sentencing date is set in December.
