What to Know

  • Investigators say Grant Amato told them that his parents warned he could have no contact with her if he wanted to live at their home.

A Florida man has been found guilty of murdering his parents and brother because prosecutors say he was angry they cut off his relationship with a model he met on an adult website.

The Orlando Sentinel reports a jury found Grant Amato guilty Wednesday of three counts of first-degree murder in the January slayings.

According to an affidavit, Cody Amato's girlfriend told deputies Grant Amato had stolen $60,000 and guns from his brother to talk to a Bulgarian woman he met online.

Another brother told investigators Grant had stolen $150,000 from their father, including a loan taken out on his parents' house, and had sent the woman over $200,000 in a three-month period.

Investigators say Grant Amato told them that his parents warned he could have no contact with her if he wanted to continue living at their home.

Grant Amato faces the death penalty.
