A Douglas County jury has convicted another defendant of killing an Omaha man during a botched robbery. The jury on Tuesday found 22-year-old Marqus Patton guilty of killing 25-year-old Kristopher Winters in July 2011.
The guilty verdict was for first-degree murder and use of a weapon to commit a felony.
Patton's first trial ended in a hung jury last July. Patton is scheduled to be sentenced in January.
An accomplice, Ryan Elseman, was convicted of the same charges in September. He is scheduled to be sentenced on Friday.
Prosecutors have said Patton, Elseman and three others planned to steal Winters' marijuana. Investigators have said Patton and Elseman pistol-whipped Winters and that Elseman shot Winters when he tried to fight back.
