And So It Ends (for those who asked to hear the outcome)

A Wayne County Circuit Court jury found Javorris Jackson, the brother of Lions defensive lineman Grady Jackson, guilty of second-degree murder today in the death of his girlfriend in a Dearborn hotel.

Javorris Jackson, 28, was found guilty of fatally shooting Courtney Solomon, 26, of Lathrup Village in May before shooting himself. Jackson had faced a first-degree murder charge.

The 2000 graduate of Southfield-Lathrup High School had just finished his college career at Savannah State University, where he was a defensive back and once was seen as a possible NFL draft pick. Courtney Solomon was a master's student in the MPA program at Wayne State University and worked an an intern at Hospice of Michigan. (my addition).

Wayne County Circuit Judge Michael Hathaway scheduled Jackson’s sentencing for Dec. 21.
