Robert Yost, 52, of New Castle, and Jacob Reese, 27, of Enon Valley, both in Lawrence County, were convicted of poisoning 17 Canada geese, 10 red-winged blackbirds and a mallard duck with corn coated with carbofuran, a registered restricted-use pesticide, in June 2020. The verdict came 15 months after their October 2022 trial.
