A jury found a Lawrence, Kansas man guilty for the second time in the July 2006 beating death of his girlfriend.

Forty-one-year-old Christopher Belone was found guilty of second-degree murder Friday in death of Linda Begay. She died of an infection several days after she was beaten with the leg of a coffee table.

The Kansas Supreme Court in September ordered a new trial for Belone, ruling the judge in the first trial should not have allowed statements Begay made to police before she died into evidence.

Belone's attorney argued evidence in the case was lost, suggested Begay's might have been injured in a bicycle accident and said one of the witnesses should have been considered a suspect.

Belone will be sentenced on February 26th.
