Tucson man convicted of murder after luring Phoenix couple with fake ad

Posted: Updated:

A Tucson man has been convicted of killing a Phoenix couple in 2002 after luring them with a fake ad for a motorcycle.

Ferry was convicted of two counts of first-degree murder. Sentencing has been set for July 23.

This is the second time the state has tried to prosecute Brian Ferry for this double murder. A judge declared a mistrial in February when a jury couldn't reach a verdict.

Charles Russel and Cathy Nelson have been missing since Feb. 2, 2002. The couple was headed to Tucson to buy a motorcycle featured in an Arizona Republic ad. That Saturday was the last time the couple was seen.

The prosecution said Ferry placed a fake ad for a motorcycle to lure the couple and then shoot and kill them inside his home.

Tucson Police found the victims’ abandoned truck in a church parking lot on Tucson’s South Side.
