An Eldorado man was found guilty Thursday of three counts of first-degree murder and three counts of intentional homicide of an unborn child following a four-day jury trial.

According to a news release from Saline County State's Attorney Molly Wilson Kasiar, Rodney E. Black was convicted of the charges that stemmed from the April 17, 2015, murder of Latisha Reidelberger and her unborn child.

According to previous reporting in The Southern, Reidelberger was 28 years old and pregnant when Black stabbed her multiple times inside an apartment. One of the homicide charges alleged Black was intent on killing her or the unborn child. Reidelberger was a mother of three children, according to her obituary.

Black is set to be sentenced on May 7, 2019, by Judge Walden Morris. 

According to previous reporting in The Southern, each of the charges for which Black was convicted carry a term of 20 to 60 years in prison.
