GREENE COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - A Bloomfield man has been found guilty of murder.

William Abel's trial took all of last week and into Tuesday in Greene County.

The jury found him guilty of murder, obstruction of justice and theft of a firearm.

We're told by the Prosecutors Office that the jury only took about 25-minutes to deliberate. Abel is connected to the death of Chase Aliano.

Police say Abel hid Aliano's body, burned his belongings and destroyed his phone.

Abel will be sentenced in March.
