TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - A Junction City man has been convicted in a March 2010 murder.

Marcus Roberson was convicted Thursday on one count each of murder, conspiracy to distribute crack cocaine, and conspiracy to distribute powder cocaine.

Prosecutors say that Roberson shot and killed Crystal Fisher on March 3, 2010 to keep her from giving information to federal law enforcement officers about his involvement in drug trafficking.

Evidence released during the trial indicates Fisher was shot four times at close range. Her body was found in the driver's side of her car in Junction City.

The murder weapon, a .40 caliber pistol, was found in a pond behind a Junction City Walmart.

Roberson faces life in prison and a $20 million fine when he is sentenced; that date has not yet been set.

Co-defendant Virok Webb is awaiting trial. Six others have been convicted of crimes related to the drug trafficking.
