TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — A Shawnee County jury has convicted a man of second-degree murder in the July shooting death of another man.
The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that 33-year-old Tony Lee Foster was convicted Friday of second-degree murder and a weapons count in the July 9 fatal shooting of 36-year-old David Payne, of Topeka.
Officers responding to report of a shooting at a home in the northern part of the city found Payne with a gunshot wound to his torso. He was rushed to a hospital, where he later died.
Foster will be sentenced at a later date.
He has six previous convictions for drugs, burglary and assault, according to the Kansas Department of Corrections.
