SEATTLE (Reuters) - The father of Josh Powell, who killed himself and his two young sons in a fiery blast at his Washington state home in February, was found guilty of 14 counts of voyeurism on Wednesday, a prosecutor said.

The charges against Steve Powell stemmed from electronic images of young girls found in his bedroom during a search linked to an investigation into the disappearance of his son's wife, Susan Powell, in 2009.
