JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - A North Florida man has been convicted of killing another man over a drug debt.

A Duval County jury found 21-year-old Jacorey D. Gelsey guilty Thursday of first-degree murder in the death of 34-year-old James E. Carroll. The man was found dead behind the wheel of a parked car in January 2009.

Officials say Gelsey tried to escape earlier this week during a break in the trial, but deputies stopped him several feet from the courtroom's door.
