A Green Lake County man has been convicted of killing his estranged wife and her boyfriend.
 
A jury in Green Lake deliberated about 75 minutes before finding Nicholas Tuinstra guilty about 10 p.m. Monday in the shooting deaths of Melissa Tuinstra and Justin Daniels in September 2014 in Berlin. They were killed two days after the Tuinstras filed for divorce.
 
The victims were shot multiple times at Melissa Tuinstra's apartment in downtown Berlin.
 
A criminal complaint say officers located 14 ammunition casings at the scene. A sentencing date has not been set.
