More than four years after a hit-and-run crash in downtown Vancouver killed two pedestrians, Paul Antunes has been convicted on six criminal counts in their deaths.

Stanley Wong, John Larkin and Ron Chan were crossing Hastings Street when they were hit by a speeding Porsche Cayenne in November 2005. The Porsche sped away and Wong died at the scene. Larkin died ten days later in hospital.

Paul Antunes had argued that he was not behind the wheel of the SUV, but a judge ruled on Friday that he was the driver responsible.

Antunes was convicted on two counts each of criminal negligence causing death and failing to stop at the scene of an accident involving death, as well as one count each of criminal negligence causing bodily harm and failing to stop at the scene of an accident involving bodily harm.

He remains free on bail until sentencing, when he faces a maximum sentence of life in prison.

Ron Chan escaped the fatal 2005 crash that killed his two friends with only minor injuries. He said Friday that Antunes showed little remorse for the two deaths.

"I didn't see any emotions from him," Chan said outside the court. "All I saw is that I knew he wasn't in a spot he wanted to be in."

He said that Friday's verdict was bittersweet.

"I'm relieved, but again this still doesn't change anything. On a day-to-day basis, I'm still without good friends -- two important individuals in my life are gone."

Antunes declined to comment on the verdict.
