GREEN COVE SPRINGS, Fla. -- A Jacksonville man was convicted in a double murder at a Clay County night club in 2009.

Cornelius Walston, 30, was convicted Tuesday on two counts of second-degree murder in the stabbing deaths of David Smith and Kevin Martin.

In October 2009, Walston got into a fight with the two victims at Club Myth in Clay County. The fight started inside the Fleming Island bar and then spilled out into the club's parking lot. During the fight, Walston stabbed Smith, 24, in the chest and Martin, 24, in the left arm. Smith died at the scene, and Martin died at the hospital.

Walston will be sentenced May 31.
