A Broward jury convicted three men of first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder in the 2006 shooting death of Broward Sheriff’s Deputy Brian Tephford, ending the first phase of the marathon trial while setting up the next chapter – a fight over whether the defendants deserve the death penalty.

Eloyn Ingraham, Bernard Forbes and Andre Delancy were also convicted Tuesday of attempted murder in the shooting of Deputy Corey Carbocci, who had arrived for backup after Tephford initiated a traffic stop at the Versailles Gardens condominium complex in Tamarac on Nov. 6, 2006.

The attempted murder charge comes with a maximum sentence of life in prison, though Broward Circuit Judge Paul Backman is unlikely to announce a decision until after the penalty phase of the trial is completed.

Ingraham was a passenger in the vehicle Tephford pulled over. Prosecutors said he called Forbes and Delancy on his cell phone, and the two men showed up at the scene with guns drawn, firing on the deputies. Tephford died at the scene, and Carbocci, who wore a bulletproof vest, was injured.
