( KTRS ) A 35-year-old man accused of being involved in a 2014 home invasion that led to a man’s death has been convicted of second-degree murder.
Cortez McClinton was also convicted of kidnapping, burglary and armed criminal action. Prosecutors say McClinton and 31-year-old Terrell Johnson attempted to enter a home in the Bevo Mill neighborhood home in June 2014. Authorities say a male resident fired several shots at the men as they entered the home, striking both.
Johnson was fatally wounded and McClinton fled the scene and was taken to a hospital by his brother, where he was treated for gunshot wounds to his chest and thighs.
McClinton’s sentencing hearing is scheduled for March 18.
