CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - A Charleston County jury found a 26-year-old man guilty of murder Thursday in a 2011 execution style killing at a downtown Charleston playground.

A judge sentenced Tyrell Collins to life in prison without any chance of parole.

Prosecutors say Collins shot 24-year-old Solomon Chisolm five times at Mall Park Playground on October 27, 2011.

Jurors deliberated 10 hours before deciding on the guilty verdict for Collins.

It was the second attempt to try Collins after his first trial ended in a mistrial in September.

Collins' brother, 25-year-old Adrian Collins was arrested earlier this week on a charge of intimidating a witness in Tyrel's trial.
