WHITE CLOUD, Mich. -- Matthew Jones and Paul Jones were both found guilty Friday of murder in the 1989 killing of Shannon Siders. 

Matthew Jones was found guilty of first-degree murder and Paul Jones was found guilty of second degree murder in the Newaygo County cold case.   The brothers were convicted by separate juries.

Siders, 18, was found months after her death in 1989 by a hunter in the Manistee National Forest, presumably raped, beaten, and killed.

Both brothers will be sentenced June 16.
