SANTA ANA, CA (AP) -- A jury has found a man guilty of murder in the deaths of Los Angeles Angels pitcher Nick Adenhart and two others in a drunken-driving crash.

23-year-old Andrew Gallo now faces up to life in prison.

The Orange County jury returned the verdict Monday against Gallo after deliberating since Thursday.

The jury also found Gallo guilty on other charges, including hit-and-run and driving under the influence of alcohol and causing great bodily injury.

The 22-year-old Adenhart, 20-year-old Courtney Stewart and 25-year-old Henry Pearson died in the April 9, 2009, collision in Fullerton. Another passenger was severely injured.

Adenhart died just hours after pitching six scoreless innings in his season debut for the Angels.

Adenhart also pitched for the Cedar Rapids Kernels in 2006.
