BROOKVILLE, IN (FOX19) - An Indiana man has been found guilty on several charges.

Lloyd Conn. 35, was arrested in March after officers found a meth lab at his residence. He was found guilty Thursday of Manufacturing Methamphetamine, Possession of Methamphetamine and Dumping Controlled Substance Waste.

In addition, Conn was found guilty of Conspiracy to Commit Murder after police say he worked with his father, Bill Conn, and sister, Barbara Gambell, 43, in a plot to killed a potential witness in the family's upcoming trials.

Conn was found not guilty of arson after an investigation into the "revenge" burning of an outbuilding. Key information came out in the trial that was deemed to be hearsay, and the Arson charge was dismissed.

A sentence hearing for Lloyd Conn is set for August 25.  These three trials were the first held for a family that is charged with numerous felonies and misdemeanors.  Lloyd Conn still faces other felony charges.

"These felony convictions were the result of cooperation in a multiagency investigation and investigators are pleased with the outcomes so far," said Tim Wuestefeld, Indiana State Police Detective.
