It took the jury less than an hour to find an Elkhart County man accused of killing his uncle, guilty of murder.

Charles David Bussard, 31, shot and killed Byron Bussard in 2015.

The case, initially filed as missing persons case, had gone cold until last year, when he told authorities he was the one who took aim, according to 95.3 MNC’s reporting partners at ABC 57.

The shooting took place in a home in Bristol.

Bussard told police, at the time, he did it because he was tired of hearing rude comments from his uncle.

When he took the stand, at trial, he said the shooting was an accident and his earlier account to police was fabricated.
