Shane Jaggarnauth of Springfield Gardens is facing the possibility of life in prison without parole after being convicted of two counts of first-degree murder in the Sept. 2011 shooting of his parents.

Jaggarnauth also was convicted on May 22 of two counts of second-degree murder, and one count of second-degree criminal possession after a four-week trial according to a release issued by the office of Queens District Attorney Richard Brown.

Brown called the crime “brutal and morally reprehensible.”

Sugrim and Rosie Jaggarnauth were asleep in the bedroom of their Grayson Street home when Jaggarnauth and an unknown individual entered the room at approximately 4 a.m. and shot them.

Sugrim Jaggarnauth was hit in the forehead at close range. His wife was shot once but was able to call 911 for help.

Rosie Jaggarnauth was on the line with a 911 operator when she was shot three more times.

Shane Jaggarnauth then called 911 and said he had been shot by an intruder who also murdered his parents. He was treated for a shoulder wound.
