Miu’s trial started on April 1 and the jury was handed the case just before 12:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 10. They reached a verdict the following morning, finding him guilty of first-degree reckless homicide, four counts of first-degree recklessly endangering safety and battery — not the five highest charges he faced.

Miu was initially charged with first-degree homicide, attempted first-degree homicide and battery charges stemming from the incident, which killed 17-year-old Isaac Schuman and hurt four others. However, if jurors found the evidence didn’t reach the level of those charges, they were able to consider lesser charges on second-degree homicide, attempted second-degree homicide, reckless homicides and recklessly endangering safety.
