He ran his ex-girlfriend off a Valley road, and now he will serve time behind bars.

An Augusta County Judge has found Mark Lahey guilty of two counts of attempted murder.

Police say Lahey rammed into Tina Mergandal's truck on Route 11 in Verona last July.

Both trucks then plowed into oncoming traffic.

Police say Lahey was involved in a dispute with Mergandal the night before in Rockingham County.

The judge has ordered a pre-sentence report.
