Man committed double murder for business?

RENO, Nev. Randolph Kling, 52, was convicted of first degree murder and other charges in a Ventura courtroom Thursday. The jury found him guilty of special circumstances that could make him eligible for the death penalty.

Prosecutors say Kling killed William Budfuloski in 2003 in an effort to gain control of the business Budfuloski owned. Prosecutors also say Kling killed Budfuloski's son a year later.

In addition, Kling was convicted of killing Budfuloski's dog, who guarded the office.

Police say Kling had used 104 aliases prior to his arrest.
