OAKLAWN, Kan. (AP) A 29-year-old Wichita man has been convicted of first-degree murder for his role in a 2011 robbery and homicide.
The Wichita Eagle reports Nicholas Dupree was one of five men charged in the Dec. 14, 2011, death of Markez Phillips. A Sedgwick County jury found him guilty Wednesday. Dupree’s sentencing is set for Nov. 15.
Police say Phillips was visiting his girlfriend in Oaklawn, which is south of Wichita, when a group of men forced their way into the home and shot him before leaving with three big-screen TVs.
