Former minor league baseball player Brandon Martin has been found guilty of three counts of first-degree murder.
On Thursday, the 27-year-old was convicted of killing his father, uncle and an alarm system installer with a baseball bat back in 2015 in Corona, California.
He reportedly attacked Michael Martin, Ricky Anderson and Barry Swanson after being released from a mental health facility where he was held for two days after choking and threatening his mother.

On the day of the murders, the family was getting an alarm system installed for protection.
Martin was the Tampa Bay Rays first-round pick in the 2011 draft. Prosecutors plan to seek the death penalty against him.
