It's a guilty verdict for three Harrisonburg brothers charged in a series of stabbings.

After about an hour of deliberations, the jury handed down the verdict for twin brothers Shawn and Shannon Hughes, and their older brother Richard.

Each was found guilty of three counts of malicious wounding by mob and one count of assault and battery by mob.

The men were charged after four people were stabbed at South View Apartments back in June. It happened at a party. The prosecution argued the three were not invited, and became hostile when asked to leave.

The defense maintained the three were attacked, and only acted in self-defense.
