On Friday, a Vigo County jury took just two hours to convict a man of drunk driving and killing a motorcyclist, but his attorney says the case isn't over.

Travis Ley was found guilty on all four charges he faced, including driving while intoxicated resulting in death.

Last year, Ley's vehicle hit two motorcycles near 17th and Hulman. The accident killed 22-year-old Leyland Owens and injured another man.

Ley's blood alcohol level was more than twice the legal limit at the time.

Ley's defense attorney says the investigation wasn't as thorough as it should have been, and his team will take steps to get another day in court.

"We think we had issues still, we will obviously appeal this decision and other decisions that were made from during the course of the case while it was proceeding,"
said defense attorney John Fierek. "Clearly disappointed for him, disappointed for the family, but hopefully this brings closure to the Owens and Mr.Quinn."

A sentencing date has been set for December 2.
