EMPORIA, Kan. (AP) _ A 21-year-old Emporia man who was present when an acquaintance shot and killed another man has been found guilty of felony murder.
A jury in Lyon County District Court deliberated less than four hours Monday before convicting Samuel Llamas on the murder charge and a charge of aiding in a shooting into an unoccupied vehicle.
The man described by witnesses as the shooter, Mike Navarro, moved to Mexico after the killing last September and has not been charged.
Prosecutors said Llamas was with Navarro when the victim, Omar Flores, was shot at least 10 times outside an Emporia motel last September. Witnesses said Flores was killed because he refused to pay for a bad batch of methamphetamine.
Llamas faces sentencing June 18.
