Guyette had been reported missing by a friend who had not spoken to him in a few days, according to the State Attorney’s Office. He had last been seen leaving his Naples home to complete a job which should have only taken an hour, but never returned.

L’Heureux was convicted following a three-day trial in Collier County, according to the State Attorney’s Office. The case was largely circumstantial as there was no direct evidence and no witnesses to the shooting.

L’Heureux could face up to 15 years in prison when he is sentenced on March 7, according to the State Attorney’s Office.
