MELBOURNE, Fla. (AP) - A Titusville man has been convicted in a teen's 2008 death in Brevard County.
A jury found 24-year-old Winston Anderson guilty Monday of second-degree murder and attempted second-degree murder. He could face life in prison at his November sentencing.
Authorities say Anderson shot 16-year-old Kevin Freeman in the head over a feud between a group of young men.
Another man in the group, 23-year-old Quentrel Mitchell, was also charged in Freeman's death. As part of a plea deal, he pleaded no contest to possession of a firearm by a delinquent and will serve five years in prison.
Anderson's attorney claimed a witness in the shooting was unreliable, and Anderson testified that DNA evidence linking him to the crime scene was left before the shooting.
