Damion Hardy, also known as World, was convicted of 24 counts including murder, attempted murder, drug trafficking, kidnapping and robbery at the conclusion of his trial in Brooklyn, New York on Wednesday (29Apr15).

The guilty verdicts end a long-running legal case dating back to his arrest in 2004 which has been delayed to due to various problems, including a schizophrenia diagnosis, which prompted prosecutors to have Hardy forcibly medicated so he would be fit to stand trial.

Hardy, who is facing a life sentence, previously shared a home with rapper LIL' KIM in New Jersey.
