After mansion killings verdict, a look at evidence jury considered (PHOTOS)

WASHINGTON — The foyer of a $3.5 million home in Northwest D.C. showing troubling signs of a struggle. A burned-out bedroom with a mattress destroyed by flames and reduced to blackened springs. A pizza box covered in soot – containing a half-eaten crust with DNA that would help investigators track down a killer.

Photos of some of the key pieces of evidence from the D.C. mansion where four people were tortured and killed in May 2015 have now been released by federal prosecutors following Daron Wint’s conviction on 20 felony counts, including first-degree premeditated murder. Wint was found guilty of killing Savvas and Amy Savopoulos; their 10-year-old son, Philip; and Vera Figueroa, the family’s housekeeper.

The verdict came after jurors deliberated for about 2 and 1/2 days, poring over six weeks’ worth of testimony and evidence in D.C. Superior Court.
