A teenager has been convicted of murder in the shooting of a pizza delivery man in Memphis.
Nineteen-year-old Dean Heath was found guilty Thursday by a jury that deliberated about five hours. He was sentenced to life in prison.
Prosecutors said 29-year-old Stephen Faulkner was making a delivery after an order was made for a vacant house in June 2009. They said he was lured into a robbery and that Heath later bragged about the shooting.
