Amanda Harris and Mario Keene

GREENE COUNTY, TN (WJHL) – A jury has found a Greene County man charged with murder guilty on all counts.

A jury convicted Mario Keene of first-degree murder, aggravated robbery and especially aggravated kidnapping in the death of Donald Ray Gunter.

Gunter was found dead in his home in February 2014.

A jury was brought in from Hamblen County for the case, after a judge granted a change of venue motion filed by Keene’s attorney.

The defense argued for the change in venue due to media coverage of the murder.

Amanda Harris is also charged in the case and pleaded guilty to second-degree murder. She was sentenced to 25 years in prison.

Keene was scheduled to be sentenced on Oct. 21.
