INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Aug. 14, 2015)—Three men charged in a violent 2013 Indianapolis home invasion were found guilty of most of the charges against them Friday.

It took the jury close to 12 hours to reach its verdict in the cases against Adrian Anthony, Taiwan Lundy and Michael Pugh. Together, the men faced 120 charges. A fourth man, Trae Spells, already pleaded guilty to robbery for his part in the crime.

The three men convicted today were found guilty of the following charges:

Adrian Anthony:
Burglary (Class A Felony)
Conspiracy to Commit Burglary (Class A Felony)
Robbery (Class B Felony), 3 counts
Criminal Confinement (Class B Felony), 9 counts
Intimidation (Class C Felony), 2 counts
Battery (Class C Felony), 2 counts
Attempt Robbery (Class B Felony)
Carjacking (Class B Felony), 2 counts
Forgery (Class C Felony), 13 counts
Conspiracy to Commit Forgery (Class C Felony)

Taiwan Lundy:

There were a handful of charges the jury could not come to an agreement on. The judge said there could be another trial for the charges the jury did not reach a verdict on. That will be decided at a pre-sentencing hearing schedule for next week.

Prosecutors say these four men kicked in the backdoor of a house in the 7000 block of North Spring Mill Road on October 24, 2013. The men are accused of robbing and terrorizing a couple inside the house, and then stealing their vehicle.

Anthony and Pugh were previously convicted in March for their involvement in another home invasion that took place on E. 79th Street that occurred just days after the Spring Mill Road invasion.
