A Marshall County jury this week convicted two men in connection with a burglary and beating of a Lewisburg man in March 2007, apparently because of words on MySpace.

Brandon Corey Medley, 23, previously of Lexington Trace, was convicted on charges of aggravated robbery and aggravated burglary at the Elm Street home of Wesley Carroll, court records show.

Thomas Jackson "Jack" Tucker, 23, previously of Nancy Green Road, was convicted on a charge frequently referred to as facilitation, and in this case it's because the jury concluded he was an accessory, or helper in Medley's crimes, records indicate.

Medley and Tucker were convicted Tuesday night and are being held in the Marshall County Jail. They are to be sentenced by Judge Robert Crigler on April 23.

The crimes stem from conflicts between the two men and the victim over access to a MySpace web page, according to the victim as reported by Lewisburg Police Detective Sgt. Dac Burrow and statements made in open court.
